It's a fact. What our children learn about handling money today will have a deep and lasting effect upon their own families and, ultimately, their service to God.
Larry Burkett and Rick Osborne give a historic overview to show how each change in our economy has affected the next generation. They direct parents back to the Bible to examine what God has to say about our finances and the parent's responsibilities to pass these principles on to their children. The topics they deal with include:
- Financial contentment
- Diligence and the work ethic
- Long-term financial planning
- Borrowing and lending
- Saving and investing
Revised and expanded to include material on contemporary trends and future financial planning, the authors discuss how biblical principles can be taught to children ages five to fifteen. Larry and Rick also give practical help, tips, and activities to teach kids basic money skills and management, using the Bible as the primary teaching tool.
