1. Earning, tithing, saving, spending and giving.
2. the management of revenues; the conduct or transaction of money matters generally, especially those affecting the individual, as in the fields of banking and investment.
I realized after this past Sunday that I should probably clarify what exactly we're doing, the opportunity your children have, and how you can reinforce what they are being taught this month. This passed Sunday's lesson was all about exploring the "E" in etssg. Otherwise known as earn, and I gave your children the chance to practice this verb. In our Funday Sunday event we discussed different ways we can earn money and what God says about how we should earn money. We then had an opportunity to earn some ourselves, Express Bucks that is.
We will also be talking about what the Bible says about tithing and I will match $1 US to every $5 Express Bucks put in the offering for Ugandan Water Project. How, why, and when to save and spend, and what the difference between tithing and giving is.
Also, towards the end of the month we will be opening up our "Community Chest" store so that your children have a chance to spend what they earned.
