Jesus says a lot about the subject of words, specifically the words that come out of our mouths. Using the analogy of a tree and its fruit, Jesus tells us the mouth speaks what the heart is full of. Our words reveal what we’ve allowed to take root and grow inside our hearts. It’s not about watching our mouths. It’s about guarding our hearts and allowing God to transform us from the inside out.
