Not what goes into the mouth defiles a man; but what comes out of the mouth, this defiles a man.”
Then Peter answered and said to Him, “Explain this parable to us.”
So Jesus said, “Are you also still without understanding? Do you not yet understand that whatever enters the mouth goes into the stomach and is eliminated? But those things which proceed out of the mouth come from the heart, and they defile a man.
–Matthew 15:11, 15-18 (NKJV)
Your word I have hidden in my heart, That I might not sin against You.
–Psalm 119:11 (NKJV)
and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
–Philippians 4:7 (NKJV)
Guard Your Heart – Lyrics
Instrument: Tempo – Seagull Excursion Folk Acoustic Guitar
1. The heart is a place where we hide things.
It uses the mouth to speak.
And sooner or later it’s going to tell
Every secret that we keep.
2. It isn’t the things that we’re eating
Or those we have heard and seen,
But all the hard feelings we push down inside
Are destroying you and me.
3. Be mindful of what you are saying,
The words that you think and speak,
For every word has the power to hurt
Or to plant a loving seed.
The heart is a place where we hide things.
[So] hide, hide within you the word of life.
And guard, guard your heart in the peace of Christ.
