Marshmallow Madness: Saver or Spender?
Welcome to the easiest family devotional you’ll ever come across- Marshmallow Madness! We can do this!
This week: Saver or Spender?
“The wise man saves for the future, but the foolish man spends whatever he gets” ~Proverbs 21:20
Hopefully at least one of your children was able to resist temptation and save the marshmallow. Reward their wisdom by doubling their investment! Finish off the lesson by discussing Proverbs 21:20 and how we can all grow in self-control. The wise man saves for the future in many areas- how can we be good stewards of our money, our food, our rewards, our time and our talents? Plenty of food for thought!
Finish off with a quick family prayer. God cares about every area of our lives; let’s encourage the children to pray about whatever is on their hearts. Add to your prayer journal weekly, and be sure to leave space to jot down a quick note when God answers the prayer. Your kids will grow stronger in their faith when they can look back and see what the Lord has done.
