Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life. (Proverbs 4:23)
The speech of a man, woman or child will speak volumes about the character of their heart. Flattering lips also will bring downfall, hurt and pain. But the truth will set all matters aright. Even a child is known by his doings. Jesus advised us to examine the fruit because flattering lips and enticing words can sway even the strongest of hearts.
A dear sister in the Lord once produced these words, "man looks from without, God looks from within."
If we are to run a successful race and not to hurt ourselves or others; just like the master, we must see pass the fleshly entanglements, looking directly into the heart. Only then will we see the motive behind every guided word that exits a person's lips.
Beloved, do not be deceived, God is not mocked; whatsoever a man sows that he shall reap. There are only two kinds of hearts upon earth today; those that are filled with Jesus's love and seek to do his will, all others are without God's love. They are self-willed, self-motivated. Sometimes using Christ to their own advantage. How can we tell between the two? The words of a right heart will produce glory, honor and life to Almighty God as their Heavenly Father; all through the name of Jesus
