REFRAIN FROM IDLE TALK
(READ MATHEW 12:35-37) The verse proceeding this text says " For whatever is in your heart determines what you say" Your speech mirrors the condition of your heart. Your heart represents your innermost thoughts, desires and emotions. If your heart is filled with bitterness, your speech will be tainted by it, if it is filled with the love of God your words will also express that love. If we take seriously Jesus' warning about being held accountable for our idle words, then we should not only weigh our words, but we should examine our hearts-the source of our speech. Here is a good rule to apply before you speak: THINK
T-is it true?
H-is it helpful?
I- is it inspiring?
N- is it necessary?
K- is it kind?
If the content of what you want to say doesn't pass this test, you do not need to say it. Otherwise you will have to give an explanation when you stand before the Lord.
