Truth in the Tongue

Friday, May 17, 2019

by Dr. Paul Chappell

“O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh. A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things. But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.”

Matthew 12:34–36

On January 15, 1919, an unprecedented disaster struck Boston, Massachusetts. The massive storage tank at the Purity Distilling Company, which held more than 2 million gallons of molasses, collapsed. The surging wave of molasses rushed out, destroying buildings and sweeping people away. When the rubble was cleared, 21 people had been killed, and another 150 injured. It was one of the worst industrial disasters in American history. The molasses that flowed from the destroyed tank was what had been contained within it.

In much the same way, what we say reveals what is within our hearts. Many times people say something unkind or demeaning, or perhaps something that is cruel or critical. Those words do not arise in a vacuum. They are the overflow of what is in the heart. While we may be able to hold our tongues for a time, eventually what is on the inside is revealed by what comes out of our mouths.

The key to controlling the tongue is not found in the mouth, but in the heart. And this is a task which depends on our control of our thought lives. The focus of our thinking flows out in our speech. “Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things” (Philippians 4:8).

Today’s Growth Principle: 

The key to speaking the right words is having the right heart attitude toward God and those around us.
