For out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks. Luke 6:45
Out of your mouth will come the things you love – the things most important to you.
It’s not only your mouth but all forms of communication will reveal the intents of your heart, mind, and thoughts. This includes social media.
I see a lot on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Yes, you’re pictures reveal your heart also.
Here is my point; I know many of my Fb friends profess to be Christians but I never see anything about Christ from them.
I see plenty of fishing or hunting. That’s because those activities are important to them.
There are those that are always at the beach or lake because those things are the foremost of their thoughts and desires.
Some are always talking about drinking.
Others talk about drugs.
Family is a big topic of discussion, including children and grandchildren.
And politics can really get emotions stirring.
Statuses, tweets, and photo’s all tell the same stories.
Call me judgmental, if you wish, but I am sorely disappointed in those that profess to be born-again but never talk about it.
Jesus addressed this a few times. Though He spoke about what is eaten, the principle still applies.
“But those things which proceed out of the mouth come from the heart, and they defile a man. For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies. These are the things which defile a man, but to eat with unwashed hands does not defile a man.” Matt 15:18-20
Your heart can change and with it what proceeds out of your mouth and social media.
You can’t do it alone. You need the Savior and support of others that have experience this life changing decision. Without Jesus all you’re doing is turning over a new leaf.
You need a new lease on life and Jesus is the Way!
