Money. Possessions. Are they evil? Are they good? What does God think about them? How does He want us to think about them? Why do we have money and possessions?
This one-semester course will help the student evaluate money and possessions in light of a Biblical worldview. It will also provide practical personal application of financial knowledge and money management skills. Three resources are scheduled in the lesson plans - Money Matters for Teens Workbook; Money, Possessions, and Eternity; and the Bible. We have discounted this package significantly to encourage all families to consider these important issues. Recommended for 11th and 12th graders.
Money, Possessions, and Eternity by Randy Alcorn presents a Biblical and comprehensive view of money and possessions. It will challenge the student to view them as God's provision for our good, the good of others, and God's glory. Parents are encouraged to read this book, too!
Money Matters for Teens Workbook by Larry Burkett will teach the student how to manage his money wisely. Some of the practical topics included are how to save for a car, college, or starting your own business; how to get a job and keep it; how to manage checking accounts and credit cards; and how to give money to make a difference in the world.
Personal Finance Lesson Plans developed by My Father's World: Easy-to-use lesson plans help keep the student on-track as he completes this course. Relevant Bible passages are also assigned, in which Jesus spoke about money and possessions.
