Praising God with our Words
Have you ever wondered what happens after a word goes out of your mouth and into the air? Scientist say that sound is a constant. This means that whatever you say continues to travel through the air, into space, and goes on to be existent forever. So everything you say is floating around the stars. Could you imagine what it would be like to hear those words forever. Every regretful, hurtful thing forever. Now look at it from Gods perspective.
"Out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaketh." Matt. 12:24 Now think about that. Sometimes we say things we don't mean, but if we said them in the first place they must have come from somewhere... This is when we need to have a heart check. Maybe we really do mean what we say.
So the next time we think its ok to curse, or demean someone, or yell, remember those words go on forever. You can not take them back. They are floating in space for all of Heaven to hear. And you might not think you meant what you said, but if you check your heart you may realize that something needs fixing.
