'You shall not murder.' Exodus 20:13 NIV

Let’s take a wild stab in the dark and assume that most of us haven’t killed anything bigger than a bug. Or maybe a nasty looking spider. But maybe there’s more to this commandment than the simple instruction of not physically killing another human being. We reckon there’s something in the concept of killing that still exists in our everyday life, and like yesterday’s commandment it’s to do with our attitude towards others. In Matthew 5:21–22 NLT Jesus expands on the idea of killing: ‘You have heard that our ancestors were told, “You must not murder. If you commit murder, you are subject to judgment.” But I say if you are even angry with someone, you are subject to judgment. If you call someone an idiot you are in danger of being brought before the court. And if you curse someone, you are in danger of the fires of hell.’ Wow. Serious stuff. Not only is life sacred to God (since He created it), but He’s also telling us not to destroy someone with our words either. When we gossip about people, cruelly label or make fun of them, God hears. When we destroy a person with our mouths we’re violating this commandment, because to God, it’s a form of killing. Yes, serious stuff. James 3:8–10 NAS says: ‘...the tongue...is...full of deadly poison. With it we bless our Lord and Father, and with it we curse men, who have been made in the likeness of God... these things ought not to be...’ So watch your words today. Which of your words bring ‘life’, and which do you need to stop before they bring ‘death’?
