Story Focus: We finish up our Make Waves series discovering more about James 3:1-6. Our words have power. James uses practical images like a horse bit, a ship’s rudder, and a flame to show us just how powerful they are. They can hurt, or they can heal, and controlling them is almost impossible. Thankfully, we can count on the Holy Spirit to help us.

Bottom Line: God gives you the power to have self-control. Self-control can be tricky, especially when we want something really bad or when life doesn’t go our way. This can also be true with the words we use. We pray that kids will begin to see that they don’t need to do this all independently. God can help them show self- control.
