Matthew 12:34 You brood of vipers! How can you speak good things, when you are evil? For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks.
Dear Jesus: Even when my thoughts are hard and heavy, let me choose to say only uplifting and encouraging words. Let me be intentional about what my mouth speaks as I ask you to fill my heart with your love. Amen.
MOVING FORWARD: Ask yourself these questions when you feel mean: What is abundant in my heart? How can my heart hold hateful and mean things when I call myself a follower of Jesus? How can I fill my heart with good?
