“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” Mat 12:33
Jesus taught the people about the kinds of tree and its fruit that comes forth, on why people speak evil and what is the result of it and also how to speak good things?
Why do we speak wrong words? : Jesus said “You brood of vipers, how can you who are evil say anything good? For the mouth speaks what the heart is full of”. Mat 12:34Remember if we speak any things wrong, accusing or cursing or abusing then it is because our heart is not right? “an evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in him” Mat 12:35b
How to speak good words? Jesus said”A good man brings good things out of the good stored up in him” Mat 12:35a Feed you mind with good things, fill you heart with the word of God, then what we speak will be good.
Consequence of wrong speech? A strong warning from Jesus, we are accountable for every word that we speak “But I tell you that everyone will have to give account on the day of judgment for every empty word they have spoken”. Mat 12:36 and we will be judged using the words what we spoke “For by your words you will be acquitted, and by your words you will be condemned.” Mat 12:37
Prayer: Father Lord, help me to fill my mind with your words and always my ears listening to you voice. Amen.
