Have you ever heard someone say, “He is his own worst enemy.” It is often used about people who just cannot keep their “mouth” (6310) shut. We can talk our way into problems more often than we can talk our way out.
Think of the words used to express this weakness. Here we have “mouth” (6310) and “lips” (8193). Other places we read about the tongue. Voice is a common word. All of these take what is in our minds and hearts and expresses it to the world. If we are “foolish” (191) people soon notice. If we are “wise” (2450), that will eventually come across also. Jesus put it this way,
(Matthew 15:18 KJV) But those things which proceed out of the mouth come forth from the heart; and they defile the man.So? Get your heart right. Train your mind. Discipline your habits. People are listening and watching. What do you reflect?
