Pleasant words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones.

Proverbs 16:24

Object Lesson (suggested in My Father’s World 1st Grade):

“Hold up two spoons- one full of honey and one full of garbage. Ask ‘Which one do you want to eat? Why?’. Let the student eat the honey. Then say, ‘Honey is good, isn’t it? God says that pleasant words are like honey- they cheer you up and make you feel better. But mean and unkind words are like garbage. They are terrible. What kind of words do YOU like? What kind of words do you think OTHER PEOPLE like to hear? What kind of words do you think GOD wants us to say?’ “
