I tell you, on the day of judgment people will give account
for every careless word they speak.
This struck me this morning as a rather ominous thing. When I really think it over, I have to admit that even to account for the careless words I speak in one day would probably be pretty hard. To imagine going through all the careless words of my entire lifetime is positively overwhelming. How many careless words do I actually speak? Do I really think about the words that come out of my mouth? Yikes. And if a careless word is a sin, how much more incredibly huge that makes the burden that Jesus has taken for me!
And speaking of words, I have a new one that I simply can’t wait to use.
Absquatulate (ab-SKWOCH-uh-layt) –to leave in a hurry; to flee
Is not that just the coolest-sounding word ever? Can’t wait to throw that one at someone!
