That’s Just Plain Nasty

Matthew 15:11 says” It’s not what goes into the mouth that defiles and dishonor him, but what comes out of the mouth, that defiles and dishonors him

When it comes to nasty things we all have a list of things which we would consider to be nasty, for instance someone eating before washing their hands, using the restroom without washing your hands. Wearing clothes that are two sizes smaller, seeing people wearing sandals and their toes aren’t clean I consider these things to be nasty.

Here in our scripture of text, Matthew is saying it’s not what goes in a person that defiles a man but what comes from his mouth that defiles a man.

Now when we hear people be disrespectful, cursing, using foul language, talking hateful words; Matthew is saying this is what defiles a man, and it brings no honor to God.

With I believe in all honesty that we all each person on this earth has defiled themselves and God. And the sad thing about it is that we continue doing it without regards to it. We can see a person eat from a hunt that they went on and we will say there is no way we would eat that. Because we view some of the animals to be nasty to eat after it’s been killed. But did you know that just because you call it nasty it’s not defiling that man who eat of it? We call it nasty true, but what defiles us is what comes from out of our hearts. Christ shows that the defilement they ought to fear, was not from what entered their mouths as food, but from what came out of their mouths, which showed the wickedness of their hearts.

To stop defiling ourselves we first must be careful as to what we allow our hearts to be influence to. For instance, when we listen to music that is not uplifting or watch movies that degrades a person or surround ourselves with people who constantly speak negatively we are allowing our hearts to attach itself to those things. Over a period of time those things grow roots and our hearts will speak and act like that which we have introduce it to.

It’s sad enough that the world dishonors us don’t you think we should honor ourselves?

MY Lord Jesus Is Amazing..He’s God all By Himself

Lord, why does these things keep happening to me? I try my best to take care of people, I do my best to please you. I try my best to stay away from sin. I take my stand against those who have no respect for your word, I speak the truth and it has cost me more pain then I can or want to count, it has also caused me to lose some family members. I’ve prayed and prayed that those relationships be restored and yet they are still distance.

I have forgiven every person who has said anything bad about me those who have done me wrong. I have even prayed that you have mercy upon their soul. But when I look at the world and see how they are I get a little angry. It’s an angry that upsets my stomach. Lord you and I’ve talked about this numerous of times. They don’t know what you have deposited in me. They don’t understand why I have seek after righteousness. They don’t understand why I get worked up over the injustice that I see.

Why does the world try me over and over all the time? At every hand my enemies try to break me, they try so hard to get a reaction out of me. The fight gets hard the battle is long and the clouds get darken. I am washed in the Blood of Jesus Christ; nothing can harm me. Yes, the enemies try but they can’t stop me. I fall at times and you reach down to give me your hand and I get right back on track. Lord it’s your peace that you give me that strength and awakens me.

They judge me my the dirt that they see on face and my clothes, they see how my dirty my knees are ashy and that my hair is not neat. They think I’m defeated  but what they don’t know is that this is what happens when you’re praying in the battle. See it doesn’t matter what my outer appearance looks like, it’s what happening on the inside of me that matters. Thank you Jesus for always understanding me when I don’t understand the things that happens.
