Wisdom’s Corner No. 25: God is Aware of What We Say


“Wisdom is a spirit that is friendly to people, but she will not forgive anyone who speaks against God, for God knows our feelings and thoughts, and hears our every word.  Since the Lord’s spirit fills the entire world, and holds everything in it together, she knows every word that people say.  No one who speaks wickedly will escape notice; sooner or later he will receive just punishment.  The intentions of ungodly people will be closely examined; their words will be reported to the Lord, and then they will get the punishment that their wickedness deserves.  God will tolerate no challenge, and since he hears everything, you cannot hide your complaining from him.  So be sure that you do not go around complaining–it does no good–and don’t engage in bitter talk.  The most secrets things you say will have their consequences, and lying will destroy your soul.”
