Theme: Taming the tongue is hard work!

“Starting a quarrel is like breaching a dam; so drop the matter before a dispute breaks out.” (Prov. 17:14)

  • Memory: Review Proverbs 15:1
  • Bible: Read James 3:3, 7-8
  • Rubber Band Wars: James says the tongue is hard to tame. Do they know what that means? Illustrate the stubbornness of our tongues with a bag of rubber bands.  Point out a spot to aim at and let your child try to hit it by shooting rubber bands. Those pesky bands are hard for my children to aim! Just as it’s hard to consistently hit the target, it’s also hard for us to always say the right words! My children have seen me fail in this area plenty of times, so I’ll probably share some stories of events they remember. That’s why we desparately need God’s help to tame our tongues. Pray together, asking God for His help!There are some other fun, aim-challenged crafts you can make to illustrate this lesson. Here are some other options:
    * The rubber band bouncy ball
    * The Borax bouncy ball
