I tell you that on the day of judgment, people will give an account for every worthless word they speak. For by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned.” (Matthew 12:36, 37 NET)
Why does Jesus say that every idle word will be judged? Because out of the heart the mouth speaks (Luke 6:45).
Those throw away comments that we make sometimes, that is really what's in your heart. That cranky character that comes out when you are tired and hungry - thats what's really in your heart - and it's just that the defenses are down.
Let us take note of these idle comments and seek God to heal these areas of our hearts.
