Money Matters: Take a piece of paper and cut it into 10 strips. Write $100 on each strip(can also use play money if available). Put 6 of the bills in a pile marked “BILLS” (rent, gas, groceries, etc.), put 2 of the bills in a pile marked “SAVINGS”, put 1 bill in a pile marked “SPENDING” (clothing, fun, etc.) and put the last bill in a pile marked “TITHE”. Ask kids, If this was your money, does it seem like you are giving a lot of your money to God? Why or why not?
2 Corinthians 9:7 – “Each person should do as he has decided in his heart- not reluctantly or out of compulsion, since God loves a cheerful giver.”
Why is our attitude toward giving important?
