WATCH YOUR MOUTH

 
 
Proverbs 21:23


"Whoever keeps his mouth and his tongue keeps himself out of trouble." ESV


Sometimes our desire to speak what's on our minds is stronger than the control we have on our mouths. It is a matter of the heart. Jesus said it is what comes out of a man' mouth that defiles him. Our responsibility is to be so full of Christ that we will not let our mouths take control. Control takes discipline. Discipline takes effort. Effort takes motivation. Motivation comes from our desire to be like Christ.


Heavenly Father, how we stand in need of forgiveness for allowing our desire to speak to override the control of what we say. Fill us with the Holy Spirit so that we will be motivated to make the effort to be disciplined. Help us to watch our mouths. In Jesus' name we pray, Amen.

I have learned not to say whatever I want--most of the time, anyway--but I have to watch the thinking. The thinking is the problem for me.
