Wording of this Handout:
Have you ever broken a raw egg? If you have, you will know what happens. The shell breaks and the insides of the egg come splashing and dripping out on to your hand or the floor!
Words are like eggs. Once you have spoken, the shell is broken. You cannot take the words back, and you canï¿½t mend a broken egg.
The bible says:
Don't use bad language. Say only what is good and helpful to those you are talking to, and what will give them a blessing".
(Ephesians 4:29 The Living Bible paraphrase)
