Proverbs 21:2

Proverbs 21:2
"A person may think their own ways are right, but the Lord weighs the heart."

App-Do you remember the times when you get angry at someone and you go off saying a whole bunch of words that you don’t always mean to say? You know all those harsh words that you are saying to that person is coming from your heart. You hear those words, understand what they mean, and then go and use them. And being humans its hard to not repeat what somebody else says. Its hard to not speak your feelings being a human being. Being a human we have a tendency to speak our heart. We have a tendency to speak our feelings and our feelings come from how our heart feels. Now when you start speaking just in general to someone, you still have a tendency to speak form your heart. When those harsh words come out and have meaning being them, it is coming strictly from your heart. Now being a Christian, you know that God is judging your heart. Its hard to not say anything without having your feelings involved. Someone once told me that your heart is deceitful. It very much is and the devil will use that as a weakness to attack you on a daily basis. You can be thinking one thing but really want another thing. Whenever struggles come to me about something that has to do with my heart getting involved, I take it to God. If it is speaking to someone else, then I refer back to James 1:19, “Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry.” Be attentive in what somebody else is saying. Be slow to speak and you won’t have to deal with saying something that you didn’t want to or didn’t mean. And be slow to anger. Your anger can be blinding and the devil will use that left and right in your life.
