What you call the "telephone game" we knew as simply "whispers'. This is a good illustration of the harm words can do - although I can also remember some hilarious occasions when words were repeated back to front. (Watch your keyboard - follish shaould be foolish. Mine can't spell either!) God bless you.

This is a great analogy.

It did bog down in the middle when you described the game.

You made a great point at the end. Good work.

You have reminded us of a good lesson. I never liked the phrase "sticks and stones" or the "telephone game" either.

My father really taught me to watch my words, being careful that they were true, respectful, and honoring to the Lord.
