What kind of fruit are you producing?
In the last four or five months, I have really paid attention to what I say, sing, mumble, etc and I was seriously surprised at myself. The things I say when I didn’t even realize it. Wowzers. Do you do this?
Examples: I would catch myself saying “This is killing me!” or “I am about to go crazy.” Do you think you are opening a door to allow bad things to happen to you?
Trust me, I was the worlds worst at saying things without even noticing. Was I hurting peoples feeling without even realizing it? How could I have been impacting peoples lives?
Now I have started a little “Speaking good things into existence” movement for myself and those around me. It’s simple really. Filter what you say. Think before you speak.
Are you allowing evil to come into your life and impact you and those around you?

Matthew 15:16-20 16And Jesus said Are ye also yet without understanding 17 Do not ye yet understand that whatsoever entereth in at the mouth goeth into the belly and is cast out into the draught 18 But those things which proceed out of the mouth come forth from the heart and they defile the man 19 For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts murders adulteries fornications thefts false. witness blasphemies 20 These are the things which defile a man but to eat with unwashen hands defileth not a man
