Topic: Use Your Money Wisely [Teens’ Open Heavens Monday 19th, February 2018]

Memorise: Wilt thou set thine eyes upon that which is not? For riches certainly make themselves wings; they fly away as an eagle towards heaven. – Proverbs 23:5

Read: Proverbs 21:20

20 There is treasure to be desired and oil in the dwelling of the wise; but a foolish man spendeth it up.

Bible In One Year: Numbers 1-2, Mark 3:1-21


As a teenager, your parents give you money for little things that you may want to buy in school, sometimes your uncles or aunties also come around and give you some money. How do you use all that money? Do you use it all to buy cookies and sweets or do you save some of it? Don’t be deceived by how much money you receive free of charge now, the truth is, money does not come free, people have to work for it; but the more money you save now, the more money you will have when you are old enough to start making money. Also, don’t think that you are too young to start saving, the earlier you get used to the saving culture, the easier it will be to adapt it into your lifestyle.

Take a cue from Joseph; he saved 20% of Egypt’s income when they had enough; later on when there wasn’t food in the whole world, only Egypt enjoyed abundance. Save at least 20% of any money you get from now on, at the end of every month, ask your dad to help you use the money to buy shares in a good company. If you do this consistently, your parents will be proud of you and you could be a millionaire by the time you are a university graduate.

Action Point: The Bible says that money has wings, if you are not wise with it, it will fly away from your hands.

Hymn 2:

1. When we walk with the Lord in the light of His Word,
What a glory He sheds on our way!
While we do His good will,
He abides with us still,
And with all who will trust and obey.

Trust and obey, for there’s no other way
To be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey.

2. Not a shadow can rise, not a cloud in the skies,
But His smile quickly drives it away;
Not a doubt or a fear, not a sigh or a tear,
Can abide while we trust and obey.

3. Not a burden we bear, not a sorrow we share,
But our toil He doth richly repay;
Not a grief or a loss, not a frown or a cross,
But is blessed if we trust and obey.

4.But we never can prove the delights of His love
Until all on the altar we lay;
For the favor He shows, for the joy He bestows,
Are for them who will trust and obey.

5. Then in fellowship sweet we will sit at His feet,
Or we’ll walk by His side in the way;
What He says we will do, where He sends we will go;
Never fear, only trust and obey.
