Have you ever said this: “sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me.” It's not true! Words can be poisonous.

  • Use your words to help others every chance you get.
  • God can help you with your words.

Memory Verse:

Proverbs 18:21 The tongue can bring death or life; those who love to talk will reap the consequences.
