Above all else, guard your heart,
for it is the wellspring of life.
Put away perversity from your mouth;
keep corrupt talk far from your lips.
Let your eyes look straight ahead,
fix your gaze directly before you.
Make level paths for your feet
and take only ways that are firm.
Do not swerve to the right or the left;
keep your foot from evil. Proverbs 4:23-27
Two nights ago (Sunday), I taught the youth group James 3:1 – 12. It was one of those “heart check” moments… at least for me. The fruit of the spirit is:
Self-control (Galatians 5:22-23)
Jesus said “…out of the overflow of his heart his mouth speaks.” (Luke 6:45)
So the question is: What is the overflow of my heart?
How about yours?
