Recently, there was a box given to me as a gift. Inside of this box, I found several items and each item had a passage and a scripture attached. The box was called "A SURVIVAL KIT", the contents of the box were:

Button: "Button your lips" to keep from saying unkind things about others or talking when it is not appropriate.

Keep thy tongue from evil, and thy lips from speaking guile. Depart from evil, and do good; seek peace, and pursue it. Psalm 34:13-14

Toothpick: "Pick out" the good qualities of everyone, including you.

Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you. Philippians 4:8-9

Band Aid: To remind you of healing, not causing hurt feelings.

He that saith he is in the light, and hateth his brother, is in darkness even until now. He that loveth his brother abideth in the light, and there is none occasion of stumbling in him. But he that hateth his brother is in darkness, and walketh in darkness, and knoweth not whither he goeth, because that darkness hath blinded his eyes. John 2:9-11. See also Hosea 4:1-19

Eraser: Everyone makes mistakes sometimes and that's alright!

I write unto you, little children, because your sins are forgiven you for his name’s sake. 1 John 2:12

Lifesaver Candy: Think of Jesus Christ as your "lifesaver." Whenever you need a helping hand, Christ is there.

The righteous cry, and the LORD heareth, and delivereth them out of all their troubles. The LORD is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit.  Psalm 34:17-19

Candle: Share your light with others.

The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? Psalm 27:1

Cotton Ball: To remind you of the rough roads ahead: seek ye the cushioned support of GOD, your family and friends.

They prevented me in the day of my calamity: but the LORD was my stay. Psalm 18:18

Gold Thread: Friendship is the golden thread that ties together the hearts of everyone. To remind you that it is our belief and love of Christ that ties us together.

For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:38-39

Only let your conversation be as it becometh the gospel of Christ: that whether I come and see you, or else be absent, I may hear of your affairs, that ye stand fast in one spirit, with one mind striving together for the faith of the gospel. Philippians 1:27

Tissue: Dry someone's tears and not be a source of tears that flow.

For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes. Revelation 7:17

Rubber Band: Hug others. We are all banded together through Jesus Christ.

Be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love; in honor preferring one another  Romans 12:10

Pencil: List your blessings every day.

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ.  Ephesians 1:3

Chewing Gum: Stick with it and you can accomplish anything.

I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. Philippians 4:13

Mint: You are worth a mint to your Heavenly father.

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16

Hershey Kiss: Everyone needs a kiss or a hug every day.

Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. 1 John 4:7

Tea Bag: Relax daily and go over your list of God's blessings.

In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.
1 Thessalonians 5:18
