Story Outline: Children’s Sermon Hebrews 4:12

Good morning, boys and girls! I’m so glad to see you all here today.

Do you see what I have behind me?

Yes! It’s a whiteboard! I have written a few words on the board already., I want to use this marker to write more words, and I would like your help. I want to fill up this board with all different kinds of words.

Could you shout out some words for me? I can’t think of very many right now, but I bet you can! Say any word you can think of!

(As the children shout different words, write them quite largely on the board, so that it is filled quickly.)

Let’s take a look at the words we have here on this board. We have long words and short words… you did a good job of thinking of different words!

Have you ever noticed that some words make you feel a certain way? Like this one here, kumquat. That word is funny! This word makes me laugh! Or this one, snow. That one makes me feel cold! How about this one? Family. That word gives me a strong feeling, too. Isn’t that amazing, how words can make you feel such strong things?

I’m glad that there are not any on this board, but I can think of some words that would make me feel really bad. Do you remember a time when you heard someone say some words that made you feel sad? Or maybe embarrassed? Or angry? Words are very powerful.

Jesus talked about the power of words, too.

He said that the word of God is alive and that it is sharp—sharper than a sword! Think of that! Your words can be powerful, too. Words can be used to hurt, like hitting with a sword. But they can also be used in wonderful ways, to build people up, and encourage them. Think about the power of your words this week, and use them well.
