Last term Little Kiwis focused on encouraging children to do good deeds so that Jesus’ name may be glorified through them. This month we will continue on to another important Christian educating aspect on teaching children to speak kindly towards one another. The truth is, our tongue can be used to bring great blessings and it can also do great damage. Our goal at Little Kiwis is to train our children to increasingly use their tongue to the glory of God. According to Ephesians 4:29; our words should do two things – build others up and benefit them in some way. If our words harm others in any way, they are doing the exact opposite to what God wants. Our teachers model this behaviour for them while emphasizing the value of speaking positive words and in a God- honouring way.
October Memory Verse: “Do not use harmful words, but only helpful words, the kind that build up and provide what is needed, so that what you say will do good to those who hear you.” – Ephesians 4:29 (GNT)
