God's Ultimate Casting Call

By Jeannie Vogel

Play: Using the letters of each person’s name, give compliments that begin with each letter. For example: Sam could be s-weet, a-wesome, m-arvelous.

Talk: Compliments are one way to bless others. Ephesians 4:29 says our words should build up others. When we are mad at someone, we sometimes say unkind things, but the Bible teaches us to bless people—even those who hurt us (Luke 6:28). Just as we thought of kind words to describe members of our family, we can find ways to build others up and bless them. Who would you like to bless through kind words?

Pray: Ask God to help you use your words to bless others by encouraging them.
