Have you ever noticed that when we travel to another state or country people can tell that we are not local to that area, just by the way we talk? I’m always amazed by this, that something as simple as our speech will always give us away.
Jesus made this clear in His dealings with the Pharisees in Matthew, 12:34B, “For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks.” Their dress said they were gods, religious leaders, but their speech said that their hearts were far from God!
Perhaps we should pay more attention to our words instead of always trying to condemn others for what they say.
