Idle Words

By S. L. Flowers

    We have often wondered, if a book were written containing all our words, would we be willing to meet it at the judgment, be willing to have it opened up before the assembled millions when the world is on fire and the elements melting with fervent heat?

    Unkind words, foolish words, malicious words, complaining words, insinuating words, all words that are not profitable to the speaker and the hearer—these are idle words and will meet us at the bar of God. How careful then we should be of our conversation and see to it that we say nothing that will condemn us on that last great day.
