Matthew 12:36-37

But I say to you that for every idle word men may speak, they will give account of it in the day of judgment. For by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned.


Greetings Bible Enthusiast!

Do you think before you speak? Is what you are about to say hurtful? Is it constructive? Is it true? Words have weight and impact and sometimes we need to be more careful about when and how we use them.

Frequently we talk, and in the age of social media frequently we 'post', just to be heard. Just to attract a bit of attention to ourselves. But by every word will we be judged, and by every word condemned.

God Bless You!

--FEATURED FUNNY:

The proud father brought home a backyard swing set for his children and immediately started to assemble it with all the neighborhood children anxiously waiting to play on it.

After several hours of reading the directions, attempting to fit bolt A into slot B, etc., he finally gave up and called upon an old handyman working in a neighboring yard.

The old-timer came over, threw the directions away, and in a short while had the set completely assembled.

It's beyond me," said the father, "how you got it together without even reading instructions."

"To tell the truth," replied the old-timer, "I can't read, and when you can't read, you've got to think."
