Idle Words

Mt 12:35 A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things.
:36 But I say unto you, that every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.
:37 For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.
Ever speak idle words? I know I have. Did you ever stop to realize how important even the idle words out of your mouth are to God? And to you? These few small verses show just how important they are to both God and us. We will be justified or condemned by our every word.
I know that makes me want to be more careful about even the idle words I say. What about you?
Lord, help me to speak only things that bring glory to You. Help me to guard my tongue Lord. It is difficult sometimes to do. But with Your help I know I can.
In Jesus Name,
