43/365: Check Your Heart

"You shall not murder."  ~ God  Exodus 20:13

Clear, concise, and to the point. It shouldn't need to be explained. However,  Jesus gave us clarification on the matter, he said, 

"I tell you that anyone who is angry with a brother or sister will be subject to judgment. Again, anyone who says to a brother or sister, ‘Raca, (idiot)’ is answerable to the court. And anyone who says, ‘You fool!’ will be in danger of the fire of hell." - Jesus Christ

Your words reflect your heart.  Harmless insults can be venom. Crude talk and jokes made at the expense of another person are flaming arrows.

GO DEEPER:  1 John 3: 11-18

NEXT STEP:  Examine your heart by listening to the words you use about others or yourself.
