“A truly wise person uses few words; a person with understanding is even-tempered.” Proverbs 17:27 (NLT)
When I gave my life to Christ, almost instantly I asked Him, “Now what?” I had heard somewhere that God had a plan for my life, but I didn’t have a clue what that could be. So, I started to read my Bible and pray a lot. The book of Proverbs helped me decipher God’s will for my life. It transformed me, and I’ve never looked back.
When I discovered God’s purpose for my life I had to clean up my act. By that, I mean I had to clean up my heart. In Matthew 15:18, Jesus wisely cautioned us: “But the words you speak come from the heart—that’s what defiles you.” It’s imperative to make sure our hearts are clean so that what comes out of our mouths is holy, kind and loving.
