“Financial decisions are spiritual decisions.” What a crucial principle that was taught in this past weekend’s sermon (Fear & Freedom, January 17, 2010). We should be intentional and purposeful in how we handle our resources, since we are stewards, not owners (Matthew 25). Furthermore, we need to teach our children these same principles. There are lots of great resources out there, including tools from Crown Financial Ministries, Junior’s Clubhouse (a website from Dave Ramsey), and Moonjar.
The Moonjar is a triplet of boxes that encourages kids to divide their money into portions for sharing, saving, and spending. Might be worth looking into for your young ones. If there is enough interest, we can probably order in bulk for additional savings. Let us know if you are interested by posting here.
