There is almost no way to overemphasize the importance of what we say.
Yet most people give it almost no thought -- usually speaking without even thinking.
" But I tell you that men will have to give account on the day of judgment for every careless word they have spoken.
For by your words you will be acquitted, and by your words you will be condemned." - matthew 12:36-37
You may not be familiar with what the Bible says about the importance of words, but if we knew only the verse above, Matthew 12:36-37, that should be enough to convince us. Judgment will be determined by the words you have spoken.
Certainly, this is not a negative message. When we understand the importance and power of words, we can use them for good. Life is controlled by words. Words release authority. Words determine the course of events. Words matter. - then i must say every single word counts.
