Colossians 3:16 NKJV
Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.
God’s desire to have His Word dwell RICHLY in our hearts is really for our own good. He knows that whatever comes out of us is as a result of what we have put in. He himself said in Matthew 12:34 – Out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks.
The mouth is just working with what you give it. It is a vessel.
When people say the wrong things and react in surprise by saying “Oh. I don’t know where that came from. My mouth has a mind of its own”, they are either truly clueless or deceiving themselves.
To the Clueless person I say mystery solved, it came from what’s in your heart.
To avoid such bloopers next time, put the right thing in and you will get the right words out.
Matthew 12:34-35 NKJV
Brood of vipers! How can you, being evil, speak good things? For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks. A good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth good things, and an evil man out of the evil treasure brings forth evil things.
