But I say to you that for every idle word men may speak, they will give account of it in the day of judgment. For by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned. (Matthew 12:36-37 NKJV)
Dear Jesus, You warned about the importance of weighing our words. Please help me to be slow to speak and quick to listen. Help me to process and articulate things with attributes of the Spirit’s fruit — using words laced with kindness, goodness, love, peace, patience, and gentleness. In Your Name, Amen.
