Tithes and Offerings - God's Blessings
This Sunday Discovery Point:
In today's lesson, children learned that God doesn't want us to be selfish or self-centered. Real blessings come when we are willing to share what we have with others. God tells us in Matthew 6:19-21 to store up our treasures in Heaven. (Scripture used: Malachi 3:10-12)
Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys, and where thieves do not break in or steal. (Matthew 6:19-20)
Read this passage with your child several times during the week. Spend a few minutes discussing what this verse means and how we should apply it to our lives.
Suggested Parent/Child Activity:
Help your child start a "Heavenly Treasures" journal to record the things your child believes he or she is storing up in Heaven. Review and discuss the list with your child from time to time. You may like to create and share a similar journal of your own.
Dear Lord, May we have the wisdom to store our treasures in Heaven. May we use the blessings You have given us, to be a blessing to others. Amen.
