Day 14 (and 15) of 31 Days of Peace


How do we foster an environment of peace in our homes?  We've been looking at verses from the Bible that teach us that our actions, and more specifically our words, are what create the environment in which we live.  Below are two more verses about our mouths:


Matthew 12:34
You brood of vipers, how can you who are evil 
say anything good? For the mouth speaks what the heart is full of.



Proverbs 36:3
The words of their mouths are wicked and 
deceitful; they fail to act wisely or do good.

We are plainly told that in those who are evil reside mouths that are evil.  From that, can we extrapolate that in those who are good reside mouths that speak good?  "The mouth speaks what the heart is full of."  What is coming out of your mouth?  Are you speaking good in front of your children?
