“But I say unto you, that every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.”
Idle words are empty rhetoric or insincere or exaggerated talk. An idle word is one that is useless for productive communication and somehow does damage.
Idle words include speaking words that were not in line with the written word of God, confessing fears and lies of the devil over my life, business, family, and finances, telling lies, because of the fear of man, or with the intent to create a false impression.
Also, words that you did not mean or/and vows you made that you did not intend to keep are idle words. Our scriptural text today says that you will give account for every idle word you have said before God.
In other words, every empty or careless word will be judged by God. Therefore, take responsibility for every idle word you have spoken, repent and ask the Lord to cleanse you with the blood of Jesus. Do it now.
