“Out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks” Luke 6:45
This week on Sharin Hearts Woman to Woman, Janie and Sharon tackle the little member of our body that is hard to tame – the tongue. Taming the tongue is a challenge that we all face, probably on a daily basis. It requires constant monitoring and careful discipline.
The heart is the center of who we are, what we think, how we express and choose. Our beliefs, in our nation, in our culture, even in our church are changing. The beliefs and principles that we once held so dear are now being thrown in the trash and considered outdated, ignorant, and narrow-minded.
A few years ago, Judge Robert Bork wrote a book called Slouching Toward Gomorrah, but today, it seems that we are not slouching but running a race of endurance with the greatest deception, division, and moral decay. Our beliefs are the beginning of what will eventually come out of our mouth because they come from the heart of who we are. If we filter everything through God’s word then we would be able to better tame our tongue.
