Where the will fits:

  • Through the will we control the heart (i.e., our thoughts)
  • Through the heart we control the mouth (i.e., our words).  –  Matthew 12:34
  • Through the mouth we control the body (i.e., our deeds).  –  James 3:2-4
  • Through the body we control the life (i.e., our biography).
