The thoughts of the wicked are an abomination to the LORD, But the words of the pure are pleasant (Proverbs 15:26, NKJV). The point of reference from which people speak is quite important. From the words spoken one can get an initial sense of where the heart is, and for some to deny this is to spit in the wind. The mouth speaks what is in the heart, and that which is in the heart deals with what some call “core values.” What is it that is in your heart? For the wicked person, that which is in his heart are those things that he establishes on his own wisdom. It could quite vile, or it may not be vile at all from the perspective of those who live in this world. It would be to God, however. The one who has set God aside in the heart (1 Peter 3:15), the point of reference from which she speaks are words that address the very foundation of the soul. RT
