28 My tongue will proclaim your righteousness,
your praises all day long. Psalm 35:28
Have you ever said something under pressure or in anger only seconds later to regret it? Something inside us stores up and at the least convenient times comes out! As the Bible says in Matthews 15:18 “But the things that come out of a person’s mouth come from the heart, and these defile them.” What’s in your heart will come out sooner or later.
So, the question is, what are you filling your heart with?
What are you listening to going to and from work?
What are you immersing your mind in?
When’s the last time you memorized a verse of Scripture?
And here’s one we all need to ask, when’s the last time you sat and talked with someone older and wiser than you?
I am reminded of my middle school wrestling coach after only one of our eleven wrestlers won his match that night. He watched us as we chowed down on subs and sandwiches, then commented, “Look at yourselves. You eat junk; you look like junk.” The same is clearly true with what goes into our minds and hearts each day. If you feed your mind junk, you’ll spew out junk.
