Elementary

October 22, 2017

How can you best use your money? This is the question that will be answered in Elementary DV on October 21-22. Don’t let your kids miss out!


The Story

Paul wrote in 2 Corinthians 9:6-7, Remember this: “Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.” NIV 

Kids at this age are starting to have some “pocket money” of their own. And even if they don’t, now is a perfect time to set a foundation of stewardship related to how we use the money we have in a way that honors God. We have opportunities every day to spend money on all sorts of things and experiences. But what if we looked at our money differently? What if we looked at money through the eyes of stewardship and saw that how we use our money reflects how we take care of what God has given to us. A huge way we can use our money wisely is by how we give some away to help others.

Bottom Line: Use your money wisely. One of the best ways we can use our money is to give some away and allow God to something amazing with it. It’s not too early to help your kids figure out ways then can give, save and spend their money wisely.
