Columbia International University Counseling Professor Dr. Seth Scott writes that in our culture today, we tend to think of the heart as the home of our emotions, sending chalky-tasting heart-shaped candies to one another to express our love and affection. But the biblical concept of the heart is broader than the emotions.

“If our heart actually includes how we think and behave along with how we feel, then the expression of this collective wholeness demonstrates the composition of our desires through our words, habits, and behaviors,” Scott writes. “The words that flow from our lips are a sample of the content that lies within our hearts.”

In a recently published article, Scott discusses why the words we use are very important. Read “Why Does the Bible Say Our Words Overflow from Our Heart?” at Christianitytoday.com.
