Matthew 12:34, "...For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks." When the Pharisees spoke, they spoke evil because their hearts (Treasure Chests) were evil; when JESUS spoke, HIS words were beautiful because HIS heart (Treasure Chest) was beautiful. The "Storeroom" in the Bible refers to the Magi's treasure chest which had Gold, Frankincense and Myrrh. We too have Treasure Chests, and what we fill them with determines how we speak. We not only speak words aloud but silent words about situations and about ourselves. Words, spoken aloud or silent, either breathe life into us or they breathe the veil of death. When we look into a mirror what are our thoughts? Are they beautiful words that express the magnificence of GOD'S creation in us, or do they bring "death" as we think what is wrong with us? Today let us express words about ourselves and others that GOD uses in the Scriptures. We are made in HIS image, HE said what HE made was good, HE loves what HE made, we have value, worth and beauty because HE chose to give us life. Let us put these words of power in our "Treasure Chest"; now go look into a mirror and see the beauty of who HE created.
Psalm 139: 23-24
GOD IS GOD!
