Out of the same mouth proceed blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not to be so. Does a spring send forth fresh water and bitter from the same opening?
James 3:10-11 NKJV
Dear Lord Jesus,
Thank You for Your Word, which cuts down to the heart. For a tongue that speaks blessings to God and curses to our neighbor is attached to a heart which has issues. Lord, please continue to purify my heart, that my tongue might not sin against others. Lord, please fill my heart with Yourself, that my words might overflow in blessing, encouragement, edification, and truth. Lord, truth is not always what we want to hear, but I humbly request that You continue to pour into me Your truth through Your Word and Your Holy Spirit. Please instruct me in the ways of righteousness and walk me forward into Your truth. I love You, Jesus. Amen.
