Todays Topic: Use your money wisely.
Ask: How can you best use your money?
Read Matthew 25:14-30. God has given us all “stuff.” Talk about all that you, as a family, have. Bottom line, what matters to God is how you choose to use those things. Brainstorm some ways that you could use the things you talked about wisely. Pray that you will remember throughout each day to use the “stuff” God has given to show love to God and others.
Remember this: Whoever can be trusted with very little can also be trusted with much.” Luke 16:10a, NIV
