New Year’s Resolution for a Clean Mouth

At the start of this new year, a woman admitted on national radio to having “a potty mouth”. Her new year’s resolution is to stop using cuss words. Just one day into the new year she’s been able to avoid cussing or swearing in just 2 of 11 instances. Not a great start; she’s asking for help. Actually, this woman does not have a mouth problem; she has a heart issue. Jesus said, “…out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks” (Matthew 12:34). For a new year’s resolution let’s join this dear lady and pray, “Lord, Jesus Christ, give me a changed, pure heart as the source of clean words coming out of mouth.”
