Play this game while you are driving or standing in a line up. Ask each other, “Can you be content without ________?” The person can respond honestly but has to conclude their answer by saying, “If I have food and clothing, I can be content with that.” (1 Timothy 6:8) or “God is my Master” (Matthew 6:24) or “I choose to be godly and content with what I have.” (1 Timothy 6:6) Take turns asking the question and answering. You may be surprised that it is harder for parents to answer honestly than it is for their children.
1 Timothy 6:6-8
“But godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing into the world, and we can take nothing out of it. But if we have food and clothing, we will be content with that.”
“No one can serve two masters. Either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot love both God and money.”
