Read Matthew 12.33-37

” For the mouth speaks out of that which fills the heart .” (Matthew 12.34)


Has your mama ever told you to “watch your mouth”? Or even worse, “I’m going to wash your mouth out with soap.” You know, I’ve had that done to me a couple of times and it never helped. My mouth was just as dirty after the washing as it was before the soap. Jesus says if you want to clean up the mouth, you have to clean up the heart. How can I do that? I’m glad you asked! The first step is to acknowledge that your heart needs cleaning by confessing your sin to Him. (1 Jo 1.9) Next, you need to enlist His help by praying that He will change your heart. (1 Jo 5.14-15) Then put it into practice by intercepting the bad thoughts and replacing them with the thoughts of Christ. (Rom 12.1-2, Phil 4.8) Ask friends who are committed to the same objective to help in the heart-cleansing process. (Pro 27.17) Lastly, never quit. (1 Tim 6.12) It’s going to be a fight! But remember, “If God is for us, who can be against us?” (Rom 8.31)
