Empty Words

Description

Words are powerful, and Jesus takes them very seriously. We should too.

Matthew 12:36

But I tell you that everyone will have to give account on the day of judgment for every careless word they have spoken.

We talk all day long, every day--but have you ever thought that you will be held accountable for the words that you speak? That is a scary thought. To think you will be held accountable for gossiping about someone, for trash-talking a person, a business, or even a teacher at your child’s school. What? That is crazy!  Words are powerful and Jesus takes them very seriously…so we should too.

You may have never known that your words are so powerful, but you do now.  So from this point forward, choose your words carefully.  Have your words be uplifting and positive. If you need to give criticism, think about your words before you blurt them out and try to have your criticism help, not hurt.  Realize the importance of your words during your every day activities.  Don’t allow your words to be empty… let them be full of wisdom and love.

Prayer

Father,

Wow! I admit I have never really given my empty words a second thought. Sometimes I am so happy to be talking to an adult, that I talk about anything and everything. God, forgive me. I know in the past I have had empty words, too many to count.  From this point forward I want to watch my words and make sure they are pleasing not only to You, but to the people I do life with each day.
