Accountability

Post  WARRIOR on Thu 30 Dec 2010, 3:29 pm

The words of men grieve me
They spew forth doubt
Hatred, suspicion, anger
Malicious gossip, contempt
A voice is to be one
Calling in the wilderness
Not a torrent rushing
Overwhelming ones soul
You have the ability to create
To instill, edify, encourage
Or destroy, tear down, debilitate
Excessive words is a grievous sin
So grave is this issue
I place accountability on each word
You are your brothers keeper
You keep or destroy with your mouth
Words are tossed around carelessly
Vulnerable, innocent souls consume them
They tear, devour the trusting
Destroying their stability in me
It would be better that you were mute
Than to be the devil's mouth piece
Know I spoke creation into existence
Know you speak life or death
Into the souls of men
You find me not in many words
You find me in stillness.

[Isaiah 30:15b; 'in quietness and in
confidence shall be your strength"]
