High Voltage Elementary: Deal or No Deal
Biblical principals for handling money
I remember when I got my first allowance as a child. “I’m rich!”, I thought. I made a list of all the things I would buy for ME! I never once thought about the Creator who had blessed me with that money or considered what He would have me to do with it. Let’s face it, human beings are naturally selfish. As babies, our first word is often, “MINE!” We hold on to what is “ours” and don’t want to let go of it. Sadly, that same mentality is carried over into adulthood. God has a plan for our lives, including our money and our STUFF. Too often our children are bombarded with messages from the world about how they need to try to acquire as much material possessions and money as possible. After all, that is how we measure one’s importance, right? Not according to God. God says that we should put His Kingdom first in all things, including our money. Instead of seeking after money and STUFF, we should be seeking after Him. If we do that, He will take care of all the needs in our lives and make sure that His children are blessed. As my staff and I put together this series, we knew it would make an eternal impact. As children are taught to use their money as tools for evangelism and building the Kingdom of God, many lives will be won to Christ as a result of their investment. I hope you enjoy teaching your children these lessons on tithing and stewardship and are challenged in your own lives in these areas. I know I was.
