Scripture: “What goes into a man’s mouth does not make him ‘unclean,’ but what comes out of his mouth, that is what makes him ‘unclean.’ ” Matthew 15:11 NIV
Observation: Jesus is teaching about the truth of a man’s heart.
Application: We must understand that our words are only the result of what’s in our heart. If we speak hate, we speak what is in our heart. Likewise, when we speak from a transformed heart we speak love.
Prayer: Lord, help me to always speak love because you are ruler of my life. I ask this in Jesus’ name. Amen
