45 A good man brings good things out of the good stored up in his heart, and an evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in his heart. For the mouth speaks what the heart is full of. (Luke 6:45)
The mouth speaks what the heart is full of.
Over the years I have worked very hard to be softer in how I spoke. Giving ear to others thoughts first and interjecting my thoughts only after considering others. I am still a work in progress, but I strive daily.
Furthermore, I strive to keep my conversation light and a smile on my face when interacting with others. I grew up with the saying, “you catch more flies with honey than vinegar.” There is a lot of wisdom here.
Thus, I try to store up in my heart good things.
