1. The Parable of the Talents
When I was young, the parable of the talents was one of the bible stories that I always hear during Sunday School. Let me share it to you (for those who don't know about it yet). This parable is found in Matthew 25:14-30.
Some bible commentators say that the Parable of the talents don't just talk about money and investing. It also talks about the talents and skills that God gives us - that if we don't use them well, they might be taken away from us and be given to someone who would do well in improving them.
Let's say someone has a talent in singing, he knows he can sing and has a good voice but didn't do anything to improve it or didn't use it to honor and glorify God, it could be taken away from him and be given to someone who's ready to use it to worship God.
Stewardship means the management or care of something, particularly the kind that works. We are considered stewards of God's blessings and we have to be good stewards in order to be more excellent at it. What are the things that you are good it, again, this is not just money: are you good at singing, writing, dancing, poetry, planning, organizing, etc? Use if for God's glory and you'll even more be blessed.
3. Money Principles
Even though Stewardship doesn't just talk about money, it still has a great impact when it comes to handling finances. Sharing with you this 10 Money Principles that our kids should learn as early as now. I hope this helps other moms like me in raising our children to become more responsible when it comes to money.
