33 "Make a tree good and its fruit will be good, or make a tree bad and its fruit will be bad, for a tree is recognized by its fruit.
34 You brood of vipers, how can you who are evil say anything good? For out of the overflow of the heart the mouth speaks.
35 The good man brings good things out of the good stored up in him, and the evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in him.
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."
It's been said that your eyes are windows to your heart. Maybe so, but I think it's also your words that tell everything about you heart, your soul and everything that makes you you. Today I pray that the words that come out of my mouth will be fully acceptable by God now and on the day of judgment. This is yet one more reason I am thankful that I have Him in my life to direct my days.

If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land. (2 Chronicles 7:14)
