It is very easy to tell when someone is being honest with us. You ask someone “how are you?” and you receive a “fine”. You know in your heart that “fine” really means hurting, suffering, struggling, etc. We say what people want to hear, but it isn’t always what we are truly feeling. Jesus often talked about how our words and actions reveal our hearts.
In Matthew 15:7-11 Jesus said, “7 Hypocrites! Well did Isaiah prophesy about you, saying: 8 ‘These people draw near to Me with their mouth, And honor Me with their lips, But their heart is far from Me. 9 And in vain they worship Me, Teaching as doctrines the commandments of men.’ ” 10 When He had called the multitude to Himself, He said to them, “Hear and understand: 11 Not what goes into the mouth defiles a man; but what comes out of the mouth, this defiles a man.”
As you look at your life right now, what is your heart saying about your walk with the Lord?
I pray for blessings today for you on your Journey!
