Note to the parent or teacher: Here is a 30- to 45-minute lesson plan to fill out the post “The Parables of Jesus: The Rich Fool.” It goes with the lesson objectives, “Study more of the parables that Jesus taught and their meaning” (Christian Life and Faith: Biblical and Christian Foundation: Jesus, God’s Son-2b); and “Gain a deeper understanding of what it means to give” (Character Building: Personal Responsibility: Generosity-2a).
Read “The Things that Really Count.”
Remind the children that there are also people with riches who use their means to help others. Talk about someone you know of who does this.
Read “The Rich Fool.”
Reflect with your children how your family applies this through giving and helping others with what you have. Remind the children of the old adage, “Charity starts at home.” Have each child consider how well they are doing with sharing with each other, and then move on from that to sharing with others outside of your family.
Read “A Palace Unlike Any Other.”
Test yourself with this “Quick Quiz: Bible, Who, What, Why, and Where on Giving.”
Review “Crazily Cool Cards Set: Giving.”
Listen to “Feed Your Body but Starve Your Soul.”
