Building Others Up

What to do you get when you mix Polly Pockets, spelling blocks and Toxic Slime?


A great lesson in building others up!

Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.

Ephesians 4:29


My husband planned an excellent object lesson for our girls’ Sunday School. They saw how encouraging words from one Polly literally stacked up the blocks for the other Polly—how it helps us walk in who we really are in Christ.


You can see the distress in his face when the Polly’s words weren’t encouraging and tore the other girl down. I won’t show you the face he made as he acted like he was throwing up the Toxic Slime! I think the point was made!


So, here’s to a great dad and a reminder too: Go and help others stand in their rightful position with the words from our mouths!
