Bible Memory Verse: Hebrews 13:5

Discussion Questions:

What was Jacob ready to give to Esau?

Can you think of any time you have really wanted something you couldn’t have?

How can you learn to be content with what you have?


Make a list of things you need (food, shelter). Are all of these needs met? Next, make a list of things you WANT. Is wanting these things causing you to follow the love of money? Remember, it takes money to buy material things.
