Scripture for today

Matthew 12:34-35 "You have minds like a snake pit! How do you suppose what you say is worth anything when you are so foul-minded? It's your heart, not the dictionary, that gives meaning to your words. A good person produces good deeds and words season after season. An evil person is a blight on the orchard. (Msg) 

Our words are the real test of who we really are. Our words go a long way to show what our heart really looks like.  We can't see people's heart  but we surely get to know their hearts by the words they speak. There is no tree that is good that produces bad fruits. Most times our products are the evidence of who we really are.  Let's see it as having a check list, for every word that proceeds from your mouth it's just one out of the abundance you have in there. 

The real change we need is a change that comes from the depth of our hearts. The change that is in line with us renewing our minds everyday with the word of God.(Romans 12:2) God's Word has the great power to change us to be who we should really be and there is evidence with our deeds and the words that proceeds out of our mouth. 

We are the lights of the world (Matthew 5:14) our words and deeds are supposed to shine forth the light of Christ. We cannot shine if our words and deeds are not in line with the fruits the life of Jesus will produce. I know so many times in anger I have said somethings which I am not supposed to say so I have learnt not to talk when am angry. Anger can plant very awful seeds in our hearts and if we are not careful we produce seeds that are not consistent with who we are.  We are called to guard our hearts with all diligence. (Proverbs 4:23)

Prayer: Father, Help me guard my heart against the corruption of this world.
