Proverbs 16:23 ” A wise man’s heart guides his mouth, and his lips promote instruction.”

Our lips are called the gateway to honesty or deception.  And while this Proverb extols the benefits of wisdom, and thinking before we speak… Job 15:5 shows the opposite when it says, “Your sin prompts (or incites) your mouth; you adopt the tongue of the crafty.”   We all have the ability to select the words that come out of our lips, for it’s our prudent or deceptive heart that guides them.
