Choose your words wisely in this walk, for you will be judged by them.
Shalom, and happy morning to you. Every natural thing we see in this world—from mountains and streams, to exotic animals and bizarre marine life—was created by mere words being uttered. But those words were so meaningful and so powerful that life actually sprang from them. Since that time, Yah has uttered many prophecies, some of which have come true, some of which have yet to. Like the words of Creation he uttered, however, his prophetic words must also be fulfilled. Whatever words Yah speaks bring action; they cause things to happen. He must be very careful in what he says, therefore.
Well, our words, while we are not all-powerful like Yah, are to be carefully chosen as well. For one thing, since we don’t have the power to create with our words, we shouldn’t promise anything, for failing to accomplish what we say we will makes us liars. And idle, careless words that are spoken, which have no bearing on anything, will come back to haunt us. Everything we utter should have meaning, particularly if we represent Yah, whose every word is meaningful.
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
