2 - Teach Your Teen to Give

God Owns Everything; We are not Working for our own Benefit

As your kids learn how to earn money, they must also learn how to give to others. In Part 2 of this course, Chuck shares how he taught his own children the biblical priority of giving.

Acts 20:34-35 (ESV)

34You yourselves know that these hands ministered to my necessities and to those who were with me.35In all things I have shown you that by working hard in this way we must help the weak and remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he himself said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’
