Where Inspired Stories and Creative Teaching Tools Come Together

My friend and I decided to do an experiment on the power of words. We both cooked some rice. I placed an equal amount in identical containers and placed both containers on a shelf in my bedroom, side by side. I wrote a “blessing” and a “curse” and taped them on to the top of each rice container. I then read each statement aloud. The blessed rice I called “Jacob” and the cursed rice I called “Esau.” These were Biblical brothers, one blessed the other cursed. It was amazing! Within a few weeks the blessed rice looked nearly exactly the same as when I began the experiment, but the cursed rice…..! It got moldy!! The same thing happened with my friend’s experiment. When I told my sister she did the same thing and got the same results….WOW! The power of our words!
