THROUGH THE BIBLE IN THREE YEARS
“Golf is a game,” said Ben Hogan, “of inches. Mainly, that 6-inch space between the ears.”
I’ve noticed some guys playing golf, take their backswing, then look up at their hands.
There are two things on can learn from this action.
First, one can learn how many hands he has.
Second, one can learn he has them above his head.
The heart of the wise teacheth his mouth, and addeth learning to his lips.
As in golf, we should live life using disciplinary thought procedures!
Disciplinary thought procedures come from the “heart” of man (spirit)!
God says that we too often are “... conceiving and uttering from the heart words of falsehood.” (Is. 59:13)
God also says, “....those things which proceed out of the mouth come forth from the heart; and they defile the man.” (Matt. 15:18)
Christians, when wrong things come from the mouth,
character is defiled,
and, witness is devalued.
Let’s just face it.
Sometimes our “heart” is set on pleasing self more than God!
That’s when we allow our lips to speak wrong things.
“Who is a wise man and endued with knowledge among you? let him shew out of a good conversation his works with meekness of wisdom.” (James 3:3)
Determine in your spirit to speak right things with your lips.
