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!


  1. Yes this is true. Words are powerful. You don’t get what other people say but what you say. Mark 11: 23. You can be snared by your own words Proverbs 6: 2. You can overcome with your words. Revelation 12: 11. Watch what you say; about yourself or your family, about your career and your future. WATCH.
