Since children soak up parental attitudes toward money like a sponge soaks up water, parents must model handling money God’s way. 

The apostle Paul recognized the importance of modeling when he said, “Be imitators of me, just as I also am of Christ” (1 Corinthians 11:1). 

Nothing influences children more than watching parents live out what they believe. 
That’s especially true in the area of finances. 
Your kids watch how you spend money, pick up on your attitudes toward buying on credit, and observe your patterns of giving and saving. 
What you do with money must be consistent with what you say about it. Your children are listening and watching you.  
“Example is not the main thing in influencing others, it is the only thing.”   Albert Schweitzer.



Parents have the responsibility to teach their children
how to handle money God’s way.
 The Bible says,

 “Train up a child in the way he should go, and when 
he is old he will not depart from it” (Proverbs 22:6). 

And while the best time to start is when your children 
are young, it’s never too late.

The most effective way parents can train their children 
is to become MVP Parents. 
MVP is an acronym that describes the three methods to 
teach children God’s way of handling money:
Verbal communication, and 
Practical opportunities.

All three are needed to train your children.

Your Weakness Is God’s Redirection

Your Weakness Is God’s Redirection

Don’t be too hard on yourself because of your weakness.

Your weakness is not God’s rejection but God’s redirection.

Being weak in one area means that’s not where God wants you to serve. A weakness means you’re supposed to serve in another area.

I remember the story of this jobless man who applied to work as a janitor of a huge company.

After the HR manager interviewed him, he said, “You’re hired. Just give me your email address so I can email you the application form to fill…”

The man said, “I’m sorry, I don’t have an email address. I don’t know how to use the computer.”

“Then I’m sorry too,” said the HR manager, “if you don’t have an email, that means you don’t exist. And someone who doesn’t exist won’t get a job.”

The jobless man walked out of room totally discouraged.

He only had P300 in his pocket. That was all the money he had. He remembered his little daughter at home. He imagined her going hungry and decided to do something.

He went to the market and bought a box of tomatoes. He then went door to door, selling the tomatoes. In three hours, he was able to double his money to P600. He repeated the operation 3 times that day, returning home with P2400.

The man realized that he can survive this way!

Shortly after, he bought a cart, then a truck, and after a couple of years, he had his own fleet of delivery vehicles.

Ten years later, he was a big-time food distributor, a very successful and wealthy man.

At that time, a friend sold him life insurance. 

When this wealthy man was filling out his insurance application form, it asked for his email address. He told his friend, the insurance agent, “I don’t have an email address.”

The friend said, “Wow, you don’t have an email, and yet you succeeded to build an empire. Can you imagine what you could have been if you had an email?”

The man thought for awhile and said, “Janitor.”

God`s Message

Are you in need of something? 
Whatever it is, put the principle of sowing and reaping into action. Sow what you need. If it’s money, be generous with the little you have. 
If it’s love, care for someone who is lonely. 
If it’s spiritual growth, be faithful in your daily prayers. 
And before you know it, you’ll soon be reaping your reward.

P.S., don’t lose hope when your harvest doesn’t come soon.
Remember, it takes time for things to grow.
