Bible Story: Choose Your Words Carefully | Proverbs 12:18
As we follow Jesus, His love transforms us. His Spirit gives us the power to show self-control.
We can follow His example and choose to do what we should do — instead of what we want to do.
This week, we took a look at to Proverbs 12:18 to learn more about self-control. Solomon wrote about the power of our words and how choosing the right words brings healing to a difficult situation, rather than destruction.
Choose your words carefully. We want kids to think about the words they use throughout different situations, because our words can help point others to Jesus.
