Bucket of the Mouth from the Well of the Heart

"Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man; but that which cometh out of the mouth, this defileth a man." - Jesus (Matthew 15:11)
Jesus' followers were criticized for what they ate, but Jesus said what goes into the mouth is not as important as what comes out.
"[T]hose things which proceed out of the mouth come forth from the heart; and they defile the man." - Jesus (Matthew 15:18)
The old saying is, "What's in the well of the heart comes out through the bucket of the mouth."

Want to know what is really in your heart? Listen to what you say in your unguarded moments.

BTW - Jesus changes hearts for the asking.
