As we think in our hearts, that is what we are. The Bible says that out of the abundance of the heart our mouth speaks words. The question is, "What are you saying?" Listen to yourself! You say that is a novel idea! Yes, it is. Many people open the mouth and speak, but they never listen to nor do they think about what they are saying. We should speak words of comfort and love. Sometimes we have to speak words of correction, but those should always be spoken with love, not in anger or hate. Let us meditate on what is good, lovely, kind, gentle, helpful, and full of God’s abundant favor and love, so that our words will reflect what we have been meditating upon.
