The average human is said to speak between 5000 and 15000 words per day! How many are derogatory, devastating, damaging or plain discouraging? Those are wasted words and for those words we have no use. We are done ascribing value to careless words, done letting the tongue be a fire set ablaze and we strive to use our words to the glory of God.
36 I tell you, on the day of judgment people will give account for every careless word they speak,
37 for by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned.” Matthew 12:36 – 37
