Dec. 22

Hello and thanks for joining in on to today’s daily devotion. Today is Tuesday Dec. 22nd. The 3rd day of the Hebraic week.

Our verse today is:

Matt. 12:36
But I tell you that men will have to give account on the day of judgment for every careless word they have spoken. 37 For by your words you will be acquitted, and by your words you will be condemned.

I briefly discussed this verse in our recent teaching titled “The Seat of Mockers.” Ya know, this just seems like a verse that gets looked over. It seems as if that Father cares very much about what comes out of our mouths. So if He cares that much, shouldn’t we care with that same amount of concern? I can’t help but wonder just how much we would really talk if we took that much concern on the topic.

Maybe we would think twice before letting something come out. Maybe we would be more mindful of what those words could or would do to others, or even ourselves. Maybe it would make us not say some things at all.

How easy it is to say something and think nothing of it. Yet, obviously, that is not the case with YHWH. Everything that comes out of our mouth will be judged. Again, verse 37.

37 For by your words you will be acquitted, and by your words you will be condemned.

This is a verse that I really believe needs to be posted somewhere in our houses where we see it everyday for it to be a constant reminder.

37 For by your words you will be acquitted, and by your words you will be condemned.

Let this be a focus in your time of meditation throughout the day. Until tomorrow, shalom!
