Words Matter

But I tell you that everyone will have to give account on the day of judgement for every empty word they have spoken. For by your words you will be acquitted, and by your words you will be condemned. Matthew 12:36-37 NIV

Jesus tells me that I will be held accountable for every word I have spoken. Yikes! Over the years, I have used my words both to hurt and to heal. In either case, my words matter.

What would happen if every word I spoke was shaped by my Creator? Words of truth and love rather than pride and anger.

Will you join me this week in worshipping God with our words?

Dear God, may the words of our mouths and the meditations of our hearts be pleasing in your sight, Lord, our Rock and Redeemer. Psalm 19:14 NIV (emphasis added)
