Here’s what I’m learning about sin. It manages to kick my butt by:
shortening the distance between my heart and my mouth
I am harboring resentful, angry, selfish, (fill in the blank), thoughts in my heart.
Say this: Whatever is in here (point to your heart) comes out here (point to your mouth).
I guarantee it.
HOWEVER, if you “remain in Jesus” (see John 15:5) you will find that your mouth becomes a conduit for the love in your heart. How wonderful!
