Day 4

PRAY FOR SPIRITUAL GROWTH

Matthew 12:36-37

I tell you, on the day of judgment people will give account for every careless word they speak, 37 for by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned.”

WORDS ARE POWERFUL. They carry so much meaning, and usually are an indication of whats inside of you being expressed. In this case Jesus is saying your words give an assessment of your spiritual level or the condition of your heart, and in the time of judgement our words will be used to weigh us. It does not mean that we will lose salvation, but this shows us how even idle words often do not bring glory to God. So we pray for spiritual growth through the help of the Holy Spirit so that what may be inside of us and ultimately comes out will be reflective of Gods Glory.
