Have you ever thought about why you say the things you say?
The birthplace of our words: The Heart
The words we speak on a regular basis are nothing more than a reflection of what’s in our heart.
Our battle with the tongue is a heart issue.
The gateway to the heart: The mind
We not only speak from the real condition of our hearts; we live on the basis of what is in our hearts.
The battle: Guarding hearts by renewing our minds
You will speak and you will live on the basis of what is in your heart.
Think first…speak second:
Let no unwholesome word proceed from your mouth… Ephesians 4:29

…only such a word as is good for edification according to the need of the moment, so that it will give grace to those who hear. Ephesians 4:29
Dealing with the root problem:
For whatever is in your heart determines what you say. Matthew 12:34

What you say flows from what is in your heart. Luke 6:45
Notice words and phrases you use:
But the words you speak come from the heart. Matthew 15:17
Rejecting Conformity to the world
And do not be conformed to the world…
