Matthew 12:36 36 But I tell you that everyone will have to give account on the day of judgment for every empty word they have spoken. (NIV)

 This should sober us up.  Every word spoken also includes every word thought.  It should make us more careful not only about what we say out loud but careful on what thoughts we allow to form and remain in our minds.  But along with this verse we are promised if we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive our sins.  This is why we talk to God every night and confess our sins of the day so we start anew in the morning.  We also have and advocate with the Father Judge in His Son, Jesus, Who will attest to our confession and His forgiveness.  Hopefully, as we grow in the Spirit, we will find we have less to confess and our words spoken and thought will be words pleasing to our God.
