Hold Your Tongue




Objects: Just the kids tongues!

Scripture: Proverbs 18:21


Lesson: Just a fun introduction to teaching on the power of the tongue.  Write several of the saying below on slips of paper (and add your own), put them in a container, and then pick some kids from the audience. Have them pick a slip, read it to themselves, and then say it while they are holding their Tongue!!! The audience tries to make out what they are saying! It's really quite funny!

Jack be nimble, Jack be quick, Jack jump over the candle stick

Row, Row, Row your boat gently down the stream.


VERSE: The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit (Proverbs 18:21).  Teach that if we would learn the just "hold our tongue" that we wouldn't say anything that we would really want people to hear and understand.  Read James Chapter 3 and explain.
