FEBRUARY 14

 

By thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned—Matt. 12:37.

 

All our words are taken by the Lord as an index of our hearts. If our words are rebellious, or disloyal, or frivolous, or flippant, or unkind, unthankful, unholy or impure, the heart is judged accordingly, on the principle that “out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh.” That as imperfect beings we may always be perfect in word and deed is not possible. Despite our best endeavors we shall sometimes err in word as well as in deed, yet the perfect mastery of our words and ways is the thing to be sought by vigilant and faithful effort.
