Accountable Words.

There are various ways one can apply the word ‘accountable’. From my perspective (and from knowledge acquired), it means “to take personal responsibility for any action done that has either positive or negative results.

Every man is accountable for whatsoever activity he or she is involved in and what he or she utters (says).

I’d like to focus on accountable for words uttered.

There are various ways through which human beings communicate with one another; from the informal way where we use slangs, to speaking in our native language, to the formal way learnt through standard education to the creative manner that poets and comedians – all these come with a corresponding responsibility to give account for every word that escapes from the mouth.

[35] A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things.
[36] But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.
[37] For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.

Matthew 12:35-37 (KJV)

In seeking to live peaceably with all men, we must all come to a decision to keep watch over our tongues. It is time to make a firm commitment not to allow anything toxic or injurious to escape our mouths and torment those close to us.

Hear for I will speak of excellent things;
and the opening of my lips shall be right things.

Proverbs 8:6 (KJV)

We must live just like Job, a righteous man in the scripture, who made a firm commitment to consider, choose and control the negative and positive natures around him.

We shall all give account for the quantity and quality of any words that we give vent to on the Judgment Day.

Every word from we speak counts!
