By Lucia K Haase
When someone says mean words to you,
Do you respond with mean words too?
For Jesus Christ just turned away,
When others had mean things to say!
He knew the truth, how God saw Him.
From no one’s words would His light dim.
Remember that when you’re teased too!
Remember God loves awesome you!
‘Do not let any bad talk come out of your mouths,
but may everything you say be good and helpful to others.’
[Paraphrase of Ephesians 4:29]
