Elementary

October 29, 2017

On October 28-29, we’ll unpack the question, How do you live for what really matters?  We hope to guide kids to see their life as more than the here and now. Live to gain popularity and friends, or live life in a way that honors God.


The StoryParents, we’ll conclude our month about stewardship looking more closely at something Jesus told His followers during the Sermon on the Mount found in Matthew 6:19-24. Jesus tells us, “Your heart will be where your riches are.” Jesus reminded us rather than spending all of our time on earth to gain riches that won’t last, we should spend our time on what matters most—serving God and storing up treasures that will last forever.

Bottom Line: Live like you know what really matters. The world is filled with voices telling us what should be important—money, power, fame, and personal glory. But what God wants for us is different. When we live our life for only things that matter on earth, they’ll end up fading away and being destroyed. Instead, we pray kids will learn to make choices about their life that will matter for eternity.
