Heart / Thoughts / Words: Part 3
There’s a powerful verse in Proverbs that I want to share with you today. It says, “The heart of the wise teaches his mouth, and adds learning to his lips.” (Proverbs 16:23)
I think this verse sums up our study this week perfectly. “The heart of the wise teaches his mouth.” What this verse is saying is that wise people are in control of what they say.
We have the ability to choose our words.
We are not in control over every thought that enters our head. Emotions come naturally. Feeling arise. Thoughts enter.
But! We have full authority over what we allow to come out of our mouths. We can teach it what to say. 🙂
I want to be wise in my verbal choices. I want to use my mouth to praise God, encourage my friends, and bless my family.
Let’s be women who “speak life” this weekend. Let’s toss out the negative thoughts that come our way and intentionally talk about the incredible things God’s doing in our lives right now.
I love you all!
// God, thank you for giving us the power to choose our own words. I pray we remember to think before we speak. Please show us who you want us to encourage and bring joy to this weekend!
