Publisher's Description

Overview


Materialism permeates our everyday life. Commercials, magazines, and the internet blare societal values that are distinctly worldly, not godly. As a result, many of us have far more possessions than we actually need or use, and this tendency to accumulate things sends the wrong message to our kids.

Ever heard the expression values are caught, not taught ? We need to walk the truth before our children, not simply share it with them. This four-session course brings us back to basic truths and helps you grapple with how to teach children biblical values such as sacrifice, generosity, and stewardship in an age of abundance.



Session 1
Model Gratefulness

Without knowing God s truth, children can grow up to look like the world around them.

As parents, we want to do all we can to shape these impressionable lives God has given us. Without knowing God s truth, children can grow up to look like the world around them. Use this study to learn how to avoid having entitled children.


Session 2 Teach Contentment

In a materialistic world, it is important to satisfy the needs of our children without spoiling them.

How can parents find a balance between a monastic life and materialism? Do we meet basic needs or satisfy every want? Are we living a Christ-like life of sacrifice or have we compromised for the sake of the kids? This Bible study will help you answer these questions.


Session 3 - Teach Perspective

Combat materialism by teaching your children about great people of faith who have made deliberate choices.


How do we teach our children biblical values such as sacrifice, generosity, and stewardship in an age of abundance? This study addresses those questions by bringing us back to basic truths and reminding us of how heroes of the faith have lived out biblical values in a countercultural way.


Session 4 Model Compassion

Grow children who reach out to people in need.

Here s the understatement of the year: Raising kids is a big job. How do we deal with all the urgent stuff and still get to the important stuff, like developing kids of faith, character, and compassion? This study will help you show your kids that God has a heart for those in need.
