Jesus said that it is what comes out of the mouth and not what goes in that is important (see Matthew 15:11). Does that mean it’s more important to watch what we think and say?

To me, Jesus’ statement that what comes out of your mouth is what matters most means that what’s going on in our thinking matters most. What comes out of our mouth reflects what’s going on in our thinking. So Jesus is bringing the discussion back to what’s going on in consciousness, because it’s your consciousness that determines your experience.
