Matthew 12:35-37 says, You can be sure that on the Judgment Day you will have to give account of every useless word you have ever spoken. Your words will be used to judge you—to declare you either innocent or guilty.
These verses massively challenge me every time I read them. Jesus said that we are accountable for every word we say, I repeat, EVERY WORD. I know that there are things that I say that I shouldn't, especially when I am angry, frustrated, tired, trying to be clever or funny. Be wise in what you let come out of your mouth. Will your words declare that you are guilty of being worldly, or will they declare that you are innocent and follower of Jesus?
The good news is that you can ask God to forgive you for the silly, hurtful, unkind and untrue things that you have said and he will forgive you.
