Sunday school class meets for Christmas party
“Sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me.”
Wrong, words are powerful and they do hurt. Many times words can do more damage than we think.
However we find in Proverbs 25:11 where words can do much good. “A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in pictures of silver.”
We must make sure to use our words responsibility, to use our words for the good and encouragement for others.
On Friday evening, the heritage Sunday school of Somerville Baptist Church met at the home of Burgess and Angia Smith of Eva for their Christmas get-together.
