What’s In Your Heart?

17 Do you not see that whatever goes into the mouth passes into the stomach and is expelled? 18 But what comes out of the mouth proceeds from the heart, and this defiles a person. 19 For out of the heart come evil thoughts, murder, adultery, sexual immorality, theft, false witness, slander. 20 These are what defile a person. ~ Matthew 15:17-20

The mouth only speaks what is in the heart. In other words, whatever is in abundance in the heart, that is what the mouth cannot help but speak. Why? Because it is the most dominant, making it the most influential.

Ever heard the saying, “The squeaky wheel gets the most grease?”

Whatever the heart is full of will spill out of it and into the mouth and consequently be expressed in words.

Therefore, if your heart is full of

  • Hatred
  • And anger
  • And slander
  • And accusations
  • And talebearing
  • And gossip

That is what the mouth speaks because the mouth speaks only what it hears coming from the heart, and what it hears, it repeats. So, if you want to know what is in a person’s heart, listen to their words. Not only what they say but what they do not say.

Peace. Love. Go Forth and What’s In Your Heart?
