My question for us today is, how are our words? Do they cut people down and put them in place? Do they cause fear, shame, and sadness? Or do they affirm, nurture, and speak truth with love? If it’s the former, there is still time to change. We need to ask Jesus to help us change the words we choose and how we say them. We need to ask Him to help us be quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to become angry. And we need to never stop trying, for Jesus says in Matthew 12:36-37, “But I tell you that everyone will have to give account on the day of judgment for every empty word they have spoken. For by your words you will be acquitted, and by your words you will be condemned.”
