Welcome to Our Savior Hawaii's Online Sunday School! Our tongues may be small, but they do a lot. Without them, we wouldn't be able to talk. The words we say have power. Today, we'll explore how we should use our words to share God's love with the world.
- What was the best moment of the last week for you? The worst?
- How did you see God at work in the last week? What is your God sighting?
Sing and Dance
One way we use our tongues is to sing praises to God!
James 3:5-12 So too, though the tongue is a small part of the body, it boasts great things. Consider how a small fire sets ablaze a large forest. And the tongue is a fire. The tongue, a world of unrighteousness, is placed among our members. It stains the whole body, sets the course of life on fire, and is itself set on fire by hell. Every kind of animal, bird, reptile, and fish is tamed and has been tamed by humankind, but no one can tame the tongue. It is a restless evil, full of deadly poison. With the tongue we bless our Lord and Father, and with it we curse people who are made in God’s likeness. Blessing and cursing come out of the same mouth. My brothers and sisters, these things should not be this way. Does a spring pour out sweet and bitter water from the same opening? Can a fig tree produce olives, my brothers and sisters, or a grapevine produce figs? Neither can a saltwater spring yield fresh water.
