“The good man brings good things out of the good stored up in his heart, and the evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in his heart. For out of the overflow of his heart his mouth speaks.” Luke 6:45
When I was younger, my mother would always say, “If you listen long enough, a person will tell you everything you need to know about them.” Her sentiments echo the words spoken by Jesus as He taught the large crowds during the Sermon on the Mount. A person’s deception cannot last too long before his or her true feelings, beliefs and motivations become apparent in their speech and actions. What is in one’s heart shows itself in one’s behavior. As Jesus says, “For out of the overflow of his heart his mouth speaks.” What is overflowing from your heart today?
May the Lord be with you.
