Appetizer: Mouth and Heart

The Bible teaches that there is a strong link between your mouth and your heart. In the following Proverb, the two are used as interchangeable in a comparison between the righteous and the wicked:

Proverbs 10:20

The tongue of the righteous is choice silver;
the heart of the wicked is of little worth.

Proverbs 10:20  
For a wise man, the heart and mouth work together to do good:

Proverbs 16:23

The heart of the wise makes his speech judicious
and adds persuasiveness to his lips.

Proverbs 16:23  
For an evil person, they work together for evil:

Matthew 12:34

You brood of vipers! How can you speak good, when you are evil? For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks.

Matthew 12:34  
So the contents of your heart, whether good or evil, determine what comes out of your mouth.

Matthew 15:17-18

Do you not see that whatever goes into the mouth passes into the stomach and is expelled? But what comes out of the mouth proceeds from the heart, and this defiles a person.

Matthew 15:17-18  
If you find your mouth saying things it shouldn't, your first step should be to examine the contents of your heart!
