If you’re like me, this scripture can come as a bit of a blow to your ego. I talk a lot. I love engaging in conversation. The Bible says that, from the fullness of the heart the mouth speaks, and my heart is pretty full.
There is nothing wrong with talking though, Jesus talked. It is when the tongue is not controlled, where it causes havoc. Whether it’s through lies, social media or from a heart that’s set on bringing hurt and destruction.
The writer talks about being sensible; know where your heart is, and God’s view on issues – and then speak.
