We shall give account for every idle word spoken

Have you ever been in a conversation and someone’s name is mentioned? If you are acquainted with them, you say, “Yeah! I know them.” Either you really know them, or you know them casually.
You may know them by sight or what you heard about them. You may even know them by what you heard them say.
Jesus has a lot to say in Matthew 12:34-37.about the words we say: “O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh.
“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. But I say unto you, that every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment. For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.”
Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh. Whatever is in our hearts will come out. If we aren’t careful, we will say in two minutes what may take months or years to rectify.
If you have the gift of eating shoes (putting your foot in your mouth), the book of Proverbs has some helpful advice about what to say and what not to say!
What about giving a piece of your mind? Proverbs 29:11 states, “A fool uttereth all his mind, but a wise man keepeth it in till afterwards.”
When you really want to let them have it, just be prudent and cover the action or words that angered you. (Proverbs 12:16)
God counts us as people of great understanding when we are slow to great anger. (Proverbs 14:29)
When we speak gracious words, God counts us as wise. (Ecclesiastes 10:12, Colossians 4:6)
Remember, in the day of judgment, we shall give an account for every idle word we have spoken. By our words we will be declared justified (righteous) or guilty (condemned).
