“Careless words stab like a sword. But wise words can bring healing.” Proverbs 12:18 ICB

Have you ever been stung by a bee or tasted the honey it makes? Getting stung by a bee hurts, and tasting its sweet honey is delicious! Maybe you’ve experienced both!

Honey bees are hard workers. During the day, each one has a job to do. Whether it’s protecting the bee hive, cleaning it, or gathering nectar from flowers to make honey, each one works hard to take care of its home. At night, bees sleep just like humans do so they can have the energy to work the next day.

Honey bees have the power to hurt people with their sting or bring people happiness with their honey. Like bees, we can sting someone’s heart with hurtful words or bring them joy by using sweet ones. We have a choice every day about what type of words we use. Do you think it’s better to use hurtful words or kind words? Ask God to help you use the right kind of words today.
