Happy Tuesday Saints.
Jesus said in Matthew 12:36 “FOR EVERY IDLE WORD MEN MAY SPEAK, THEY WILL GIVE ACCOUNT OF IT IN THE DAY OF JUDGEMENT.”
We know from Romans 14:12 that “EACH OF US WILL GIVE AN ACCOUNT OF HIMSELF TO GOD.” But did you know that we’d also give an account for “EVERY IDLE WORD” that we may speak?
The Greek word translated as “idle” also means, “careless, lazy, thoughtless, useless, unprofitable, and injurious.”
None of us could possibly remember EVERY thoughtless word that we’ve ever uttered, but it may help us to keep in mind that GOD heard EVERY SINGLE ONE.
Now, before you get too comfortable, that’s EVERY WORD! Every gossip, every backstab, every murmur, every complaint, every unfair judgement, every smear, every betrayal, every rumour, every scandal, every curse, every insult, every cruelty, every exaggeration, every false accusation, every deception, every falsehood, every lie, and every whisper that you’ve ever uttered.
We will account for EVERY CARELESS WORD. We cannot afford to be reckless with our words. It’s time we start caring about what we say. We need to think before we speak.
Choose your words carefully today. An Omniscient and Omnipresent God is listening. If you’ll speak to please Him, your life will be abundantly blessed.
Have an awesome day. God bless and lots’a love,
