The Heart-Mouth Connection

In summary of Proverbs 14:23 it says, “Work and you will earn a living; if you sit around talking you will be poor.”

Bottom line:
Work brings profit, but mere talk leads to poverty!

What this means to me:
I need to put forth effort and work hard.  When I do, then it will be profitable, I’ll be able to make a living.  This verse bring a caution, just mulling around and talking about something without action doesn’t mean much.  I must put it into practice for it to be of any profit.  Also, what comes from my mouth, is always related to what’s really in my heart, there is a direct connection.  So whatever my heart is filled with is going to come out of my mouth. The Bible says in Mark 12:30, “You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your mind, and all your strength” (NLT). For me, another way to say this is, I need to love God with all my talk, all my feelings, all my thinking, and all of my acting.  This verse reminds me stop talking about something, and to start doing it.  Being idle and full of ideas is ok for a bit, but in order to be useful, I would need to do something.
