Lesson Opening ActivityHow will you use it? Management and stewardship exerciseThis opener is adaptable according to the ages of your group and how much timeyou have to spend on your lesson and introduction. Give students a littlechallenge: (Younger students) Tell kids that they get to open up a store. Brainstormwhat they think they might need to do in preparation. What kind of store willit be? What would they need besides products? Invite kids to draw somepictures of their business and what it might include. If extra time allows, havethem form groups and “act out” what their business might be. (Older students) Inform students that they have a certain budget, and theirtask is to envision a business of their own. Have them estimate how much oftheir budget different elements might cost, and what they would need toopen a store or launch their business. Discuss what it might take and howthey would apportion amounts of their money for their ideas to succeed. Itisn’t easy!Explain to students that today’s lesson has to do with stewardship, which refers tobeing responsible with what God gives us.Copyright Ministry-To-Children.com – Permission granted for any non-profit use.

Teach: Bible Lesson from Luke 16:1-15Begin the lesson by asking students what kinds of things we need money for. Dothey get an allowance? Do they see parents using money for things? (Thisdiscussion will vary depending on audience and ages)What should we do with our money? If someone gave you money and asked youto get them something, what might be a wise thing to purchase?For older students, read the parable of the shrewd manager, and chat about whatthey think it might mean. For younger kids, focus on the last portion of it, lookingat the emphasis of “choosing a master.”If then you have not been faithful in the unrighteous wealth, who willentrust to you the true riches? 12 And if you have not been faithfulin that which is another's, who will give you that which is yourown? 13 No servant can serve two masters, for either he will hate theone and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despisethe other. You cannot serve God and money.” -Luke 16:11-13Some people worship money, in a way. They think about it all the time, or workconstantly in order to get more money. Some people are not responsible withmoney and run out of it easily.Did you know that God entrusts us with everything we have? That means He givesus all things, including money. Our possessions are not really ours to keep. It’s sortof like we are borrowing what we have from God But He also promises to takecare of us.Copyright Ministry-To-Children.com – Permission granted for any non-profit use.

Therefore do not be anxious, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘Whatshall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32 For the Gentiles seekafter all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you needthem all. 33 But seek first the kingdom of God and hisrighteousness, and all these things will be added to you. “Thereforedo not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious foritself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble. -Matthew 6:31-34What does this mean? We want to focus on God first and foremost in all things.We want to be wise with our resources that is, be careful to use our things andour money in ways that will benefit others and bring glory to God.We also want to make sure we trust God, and try to think of Him when we areplanning. How can we do that? We can pray, or read our Bibles, and certainly askourselves (or someone we trust) what would be best.Also, consider that the gifts God gives us are not all monetary brainstorm withstudents what else God gives us, aside from money. He gives us talents, like beingable to sing, or draw, or write, or dance, or make people laugh. He gives us time,which we can use to help one another or do things for Him.These items do not have a price tag. And when we use them for God, we can beassured that we will have joy and peace. Our joy is not in things, but in the Makerof things:But godliness with contentment is great gain, 7 for we broughtnothing into the world, and[c] we cannot take anything out of theworld. 8 But if we have food and clothing, with these we will becontent. 9 But those who desire to be rich fall into temptation, into asnare, into many senseless and harmful desires that plunge peopleinto ruin and destruction. 10 For the love of money is a root of all kindsof evils. It is through this craving that some have wandered awayCopyright Ministry-To-Children.com – Permission granted for any non-profit use. Writtenby Kristin Schmidt .

from the faith and pierced themselves with many pangs.11 But as foryou, O man of God, flee these things. Pursue righteousness, godliness,faith, love, steadfastness, gentleness. 12 Fight the good fight of thefaith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called and aboutwhich you made the good confession in the presence of manywitnesses. -1 Timothy 6:6-12If we are focused on loving temporary things or money, we will find ourselvesdisappointed. This is an important warning for young and older students alike.Stuff doesn’t satisfy, even if it might be momentarily appealing. Brainstorm withkids how they might find this “godliness with contentment.”When we are thankful for what we have, and pursue Christ, there’s no time forsilly yearning for things we don’t have. Let’s focus on the blessings of God!Close with prayer and thank God for giving us amazing blessings. Ask for His help inwisely and responsibly using what He has given us.Copyright Ministry-To-Children.com – Permission granted for any non-profit use. Writtenby Kristin Schmidt .

Sunday School Craft on StewardshipStewardship banks (See detailed instructions and picture representations forspecifics)Help students create their own special “banks” to practice responsibility withmoney and planning. Encourage them to use their banks for more than just coins:prayer requests, praises, ideas, and thank yous can also fill the coffers. Create a simple paper bank: Decorate a large sheet of construction paper,including stickers and a verse or caption (“my tithes” or “my heart belongs toGod”). Cut out a flap and attach it to another piece of paper for background. Recycle an old container for a bank. This works with a used coffee can,oatmeal container, tissue box, or other empty clean container. Have students(or help students) cover in construction paper or wrapping paper. Decorateas desired and cut an opening in the top.See the written craft directions and watch the video example.Copyright Ministry-To-Children.com – Permission granted for any non-profit use.
