7 Financial Principles for Kids, #2: God made us for WORK

UncategorizedJared Kennedy1 Comment

#2 God made us for WORK.  God created us to work.  We work hard, because we are working for the Lord (Col 3:23).  We are made in His image, and we are intended to show His glory to the world (Genesis 1:27).

  • Let your child hold a penny, nickel, dime, and quarter.  Review their names and how many cents each is worth.  Learn the names of the people on the coins.  Read Mark 12:13-17.  Because the coins have the image of American figures, they belong to and work in the United States.  Because we are made in God’s image, we belong to and work for God.
  • Talk to your child about what you do for a living.  If you work outside the home, take your child to your work and show him or her what you do.
