THE WELL OF THE HEART….Zig Ziglar

THE WELL OF THE HEART….Zig Ziglar

“Not what goes into the mouth defiles a man; but what comes out of the mouth, this defiles a man.”  Matthew 15:11

“The mouth of the righteous brings forth wisdom, But the perverse tongue will be cut out.”  Proverbs 10:31

    Most of us think very little about our communication.  We’ve developed habits of saying the same things in the same ways to the same people.   However, we need to be more intentional about the words we say to one another.  Healing messages say, “I love you,” “I’m proud of you,” and “You’re really good at that!”  Critical words cut like a knife.  And sarcasm is the same knife with a pearl handle.

     Words reveal what’s in our hearts.  If what spills out is too often negative, biting, caustic, or sarcastic, we need to ask God to fill the well with faith, hope, and love so that positive words come out by the bucketful.

Think of the conversations you’ve had in the past day. How would you describe the content of your words?

What changes do you need to make in your communication, especially with those you love?
