Beware Of Foolish Or Idle Talk

Matthew 12:33-37 (NIV)

The Lord Jesus Christ knew the thoughts of the Pharisees.

And He again warned them concerning their wicked words.


Our words reveal the state of our hearts.

Just as a tree is known by its fruit, our spiritual state is revealed by the words that come from our lips.


Evil words are the natural product of an evil heart.

The evil man brings forth evil things from his evil treasury.


Let us be sure that we are like the good man who brings out good things from his good treasury.


Our words are important.

The Lord Jesus Christ warned that everyone will have to give account on the day of judgment for every empty word they have spoken.

We must beware of foolish or idle talk.


The Lord Jesus Christ knows every word that we utter and all will be recalled on the day of judgment.

Let us take great care and think before we speak.


Before speaking about others, we should ask ourselves, "Is it true?", "Is it kind?", "Is it necessary?" etc.


Coarse joking and filthy talk should be unthinkable for any Christian.


If we don't bridle our tongues, we will be ashamed on the day of judgment.
