Matthew 15:10-12 (New International Version) 10 Jesus called the crowd to him and said, “Listen and understand. 11What goes into someone’s mouth does not defile them, but what comes out of their mouth, that is what defiles them.” 12 Then the disciples came to him and asked, “Do you know that the Pharisees were offended when they heard this?”
Are we to busy telling others what they should do, what they should eat or not eat or put into their bodies? Why are we judging and condemning? Jesus spoke in the above verses about what goes into the someones mouth does not defile them, it's what comes out..our judgement on others isn't what God wants, He wants us to love others and guide them and pray for them..Someone passed a prayer need just the last week, I have never seen it go further than my email, no one passed it out, because maybe they didn't want to show others that persons needs or they may think what that someone puts into their body may defile them, Jesus says it's what comes out of their mouth and heart is what defiles them..
Jesus speaks the Truth, maybe we get it wrong at times, but we pray when we do, and nobody has the right to condemn others and we need to watch what comes out of our mouths. I believe every prayer need is very important. No matter how they sound or what they need..when we pass out prayer needs God wants to answer those needs, when we discourage others it hurts that person and it seems to make them go into hiding and they get afraid to trust others..God doesn't want that..We should be open to each other, after all we are all apart of the family of God.
Jesus was the only human in the whole world who was without sin and He said let those without sin cast the first stone, we are all dealing with addictions of some kind rather it be obiesity or other things,it's what comes out of the mouth not what goes in.
Thank you to my friend who inspired me to write this he and God knows who that is..
- Proverbs 17:15
Acquitting the guilty and condemning the innocent— the LORD detests them both.
- Isaiah 50:9
It is the Sovereign LORD who helps me. Who will condemn me? They will all wear out like a garment; the moths will eat them up.
