Sunday mornings are like game day for children’s ministry. Just like any good coach, gather your team of volunteers for a pre-game pep talk. Answer any questions about the curriculum and ask for prayer requests. Then read the following devotion to kick the morning off:
Stewardship isn’t just a money thing. We’ve been trusted with WAY more than just money. God has given us time, talents and resources (stuff) too. And one day, we’ll give an account for how well we managed ALL of it. When you sit with your small group this week, challenge them to think about which of the three people in this parable they most relate to – the ones who invested their money to make more or is the guy who buried it to protect it? Are they being good stewards of the stuff that God’s given them? Why or why not?
