It’s All About The Heart (Matthew 15:18)

GossipAboutPeopleBehindTheirBacks

We may think we’re godly people because we go to church regularly or pray, but then we gossip or talk about people behind their backs. James 3:9-10 says, “With [our tongue] we bless our God and Father, and with it we curse men … Out of the same mouth proceed blessing and cursing … These things ought not to be so.”

If a siren blares from our mouth when we open it, we need to examine our heart and ask the Lord to forgive us and help us be a blessing to others. – Anne Cetas

Lord, cleanse our hearts so that what we speak

Will be reflective of Your grace;

And help us to control our tongues

So we’ll not bring on You disgrace. – Sper

Every time you speak, your mind is on parade.
