Enjoy Life, Enjoy God

We speak words casually in our world this day. We swim in an ocean of words. Words come to our ears in a flood, and out of our mouth almost like exhaling.

When you make a vow to God, do not delay to fulfill it. He has no pleasure in fools; fulfill your vow...Do not let your mouth lead you into sin...Much dreaming and many words are meaningless. Therefore fear God.
- Ecclesiastes 5:4,6,7 TNIV

Ecclesiastes, the Preacher, cautions against casual words. They may seem like no big deal, or, "I was just kidding," but in the ears of eternity, not so. In the ears of one another, not so. Intentionality, give thought to the words we use, and the commitments our words utter.

The mouth is not be like a hose just spewing forth. That is a fool's life.
