LIFE APP:  
STEWARDSHIP – Taking care of what you have because it all belongs to God
DO THIS:

 MORNING TIME


Leave a quick note in your child's backpack reminding them, "Whatever your hand finds you to do, do it with all your might." You got this!"

 DRIVE TIME


While driving around town, look for possible needs that you could meet. For example, you might see trash on a corner, someone sitting on the side of the road, or a nursing home asking for volunteers. As a family, pick a need you can meet and go do it together. This is a great time to encourage your child to steward their time and talents.

 MEAL TIME


Ask a kid: Would you rather have unlimited free time or unlimited money, and why?
Ask a parent: What was something you had to save up to buy when you were a kid? How did you treat that thing once you got it?

 BED TIME


Read Matthew 25:14-30. God has given us all “stuff.” Talk about all that you, as a family, have. Bottom line, what matters to God is how you choose to use those things. Brainstorm some ways that you could use the things you talked about wisely. Pray that you will remember throughout each day to use the “stuff” God has given to show love to God and others.
