I work with the Kindergartners and First Graders on Wednesday nights and one of the small group leaders, Vicki brought in some stickers for the other small group leaders to use.

She explained that she had ordered them and instead of getting 3 or 4 sets like she expected, she had received a tall stack of them. She wasn’t sure why they had sent so many, but the good news was she had plenty to share.

It wasn’t until a couple weeks later that one of the first graders noticed something that explained why she received so many so cheap.

He actually looked up the verse at the bottom of the sticker (Psalm 38.5) and discovered that it was mislabeled. So what is the real Psalm 38.5?

“My wounds stink and fester because of my foolishness”

. . which, although it is the inspired word of God, may be slightly less appropriate on a sticker meant to encourage a child, don’t you think?

If you’d like to purchase these stickers, they are still available here.
