Clear Fountain vs. Stagnant Swamp
A good person’s mouth is a clear fountain of wisdom; a foul mouth is a stagnant swamp.
Many fail to realize the role their tongue, speech, and words have on their
lives. Solomon, considered the wisest man in the Bible, shares great
God-inspired wisdom in the book of proverbs. In this morning’s proverb
he says, “A good person’s mouth is a clear fountain of wisdom; a foul mouth is a stagnant swamp.” What the point? The point is that what comes out of your mouth is a clear
indication of what kind of person you are internally. What is in you
abundantly will come out of you eventually.
So what does this mean to you today? It means that your audio must match your video. You can portray the right
outward appearance (your video), but if your words (your audio) do no
align with you image then there is something wrong. Being a person of
integrity literally means that you are fully integrated. If you consider yourself a good and Godly person then your words MUST testify to the
same. You can’t project good, but then speak bad all day long and think
that you will be effective in the Kingdom of God. A foul mouth is a
stagnant swamp and it is an indication that a stagnant swamp lives
inside of the person speaking the foul words. However, a good mouth is a clear fountain of wisdom! Praise God! Which on are you?
Confession for this day: Lord God. A clear fountain of wisdom is inside of me, because You are inside of me. I now declare, by faith, that my words will spring forth good
things and they serve as an outwards testimony of my inward condition! In Jesus’ name.
