But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment (Matthew 12:36). But the tongue can no man tame; it is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison (James 3:8).
Bless it be the name of the Lord, my dear readers! I pray that your weekend was filled with joy, peace, and harmony despite the events that are occurring in the world today. No matter what’s happening, God is still in control and has the last say so. This morning I want to discuss something that has always been a problem among humanity. It is something that I loathe and have no problems closing my ears to. That is profanity. Why do people use profanity? I mean, it’s complete filth in the mouth. It’s like when you eat something that’s so nasty you spit it out, or you contort your face into disgust. In my opinion, it doesn’t make a person sound intelligent at all and only makes them sound mean. I don’t believe that the Almighty wants us to talk to one another with hateful words. As followers and ambassadors for Jesus, we are to encourage one another and show love. When you use profanity, you’re taking a risk on your soul because the scripture above mentions that we will be accountable for every word that we say, even negative words that hurt people, because it’s coming from the heart. The heart is the main organ that God looks at (1 Samuel 16:7). Also, we need to be careful with our tongue because, as it is written, it’s poison and can be deadly to someone or even yourself. Words hurt, and they could cause death. When you use abusive language, you’re not glorifying God but the devil because it’s evil talking, and evil comes from the devil. I call it the devil’s language, and almost everyone speaks it, even children. God doesn’t want His people to speak like the world. Remember, we are in the world but not of the world (John 17:16). Nor are we supposed to love the world or the things in this world (1 John 2:15). So, we shouldn’t talk like the world. Our mouths should only be used to glorify God and speak positivity to one another. Remember, there is life and death in the power of the tongue (Proverbs 18:21). Our children are listening and observing. Let’s do the right thing by being an example for them because, as I said in one of my blogs, we would be accountable for them. My dear brothers and sisters, let’s keep each other uplifted with our words and pray without ceasing for one another. Please, comment below. Let me know what you all think, and thank you so much for the support. May the Lord bless thee and keep thee. Talk to you all again soon.
