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.
