The Kingdom of God is not earned with what we speak, the tongue, but with the heart. The heart is where we keep the treasures with which the Kingdom is bought. If the heart is full of God’s treasures, then our tongue who is the messenger of these treasures, will speak in a reliable and enjoyable fashion.
St. Nikolai (Velimirovich) of Ochrid and Zicha
