Bible Challenge – Matthew 15

“‘But the words you speak come from the heart—that’s what defiles you. 19 For from the heart come evil thoughts, murder, adultery, all sexual immorality, theft, lying, and slander. 20 These are what defile you. Eating with unwashed hands will never defile you.’” v.18-20 (NLT)

Words matter! With our words we can do much damage and we can also do much encouraging.  Our words tend to reveal the things that are deep in our heart.  There are times that we are more protective of the words we use than others, but over time, our words will reveal who we really are.  Because of this, we have to resist the temptation to say one thing and do another.  The only way this can happen is to allow Christ to transform us from the inside out starting with our heart and mind.

Today, will the words you choose to say reflect more about you and your heart, or will they reflect Christ and the heart of God?
