Possessions in the Bible: Creative activities for your children's ministry

Possessions and material wealth are frequently discussed in the Bible, and they are an important topic for children to learn about. The Bible teaches that God has given us the resources we need to live and that we should be wise stewards of these resources.

It also warns against the dangers of greed and materialism, reminding us that our true treasure is in heaven and that we should focus on spiritual riches rather than material wealth. For example, Jesus taught the parable of the rich fool, showing the danger of putting our trust in material possessions.

Children's workers can help kids understand possessions by teaching them the importance of being good stewards of what they have and by encouraging them to focus on spiritual wealth rather than material wealth.

They can also help kids learn to be content with what they have and to trust in God's provision for their lives. By learning about possessions in the Bible, children can develop a healthy perspective on material wealth and can learn to prioritize what is truly important in life.

On this page you will find creative ideas, resources and activities relating to the topic of possessions which you can use in your Bible lessons, kidmin, kid’s ministry, elementary school or homeschooling.
