In this episode, Liz and Spike learn that the only way to stop a war of mean words is to use kind words instead.

Why are words so important? It’s because words are the way we get to know other people. They are the way we discover how other people think and feel; they tell us what other people are really like. Words can make us feel wonderful, and they can make us feel miserable. And they can do the same thing to others when we use them.

Think about a time when you did something that made you really happy. Maybe you got an “A” on a test at school, or scored a goal in soccer. Maybe you wanted to help your mom so you did the dishes without being told. What if your parents, when they found out what you had done, had just said, “Who cares? It’s no big deal!” How would that have made you feel? But what if they said, “Wow! That’s great! We are so proud of you, and we love you.” How would you feel then? The Bible says that the right words can even make our bodies feel better (Proverbs 16:24).

For the next week, watch and see how the words you use make others feel. Carry a piece of paper and a pencil. On one side, mark a check when something you say makes someone happy or helps them in a hard time. On the other side, mark a check when something you say makes someone sad, angry or confused. At the end of the week, count up the checks on each side and see how you did. Think about how you can get better at using words that help others.
