The format of my 2020 blogs was inspired by James Clear’s “3-2-1” Thursdays. Building from my recent book UNBEATABLE! Seven Pillars of Personal Excellence, each week you will receive One Pillar, One Principle and One Practical.
“For out of the overflow of his heart, his mouth speaks.”-Jesus, the Christ.
The well-known expression that “out of the overflow of the heart, the mouth speaks” was uttered by Jesus Christ in the first century A.D. during his public ministry. This was an insightful observation. Our hearts and tongues are connected whether we accept it or not. If we wish to speak pure words, we need to keep pure hearts. Are there any issues in your heart that you have ignored? Envy? Jealousy? Bitterness? Lack of forgiveness? Don’t let it linger. As a wise woman I met years ago said: “Life is not kind to the things you neglect.”
Find someone you can trust and talk to him or her this upcoming week about one deep issue lodged in your heart that you have ignored. Be transparent. Be vulnerable. Trust me on this: open up and feel the liberation.
