Overflow Of Heart
By June Stein
A gentle answer repels wrath
But harsh words stir up anger,
From the overflow of heart
Our mouth speaks good or evil.
Jesus cautioned that evil comes
From inside, within our heart,
When expressed and carried out
It becomes our greater part.
When we set our hearts in Jesus
He will help us weather storms,
Gives us peace and gentle care
In His love, cold hearts are warmed.
Peace of heart and peace of soul
Come from Jesus Christ our Lord.
“….How can you who are evil say anything good?
For out of the overflow of the heart the mouth speaks.
The good man brings good things out of the good stored up in him,
and the evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in him.”
