Want to teach your children values? Below, you will find tips, tools, and resources to teach them about Appreciation.
Appreciation is the ability to recognize and acknowledge the worth of someone or something. The first and most important thing for us to appreciate is our Creator. When we understand what He has done for us, it is easier to appreciate everything we have.
“He died for us so that, whether we are awake or asleep, we may live together with Him. Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing. Now we ask you, brothers and sisters, to acknowledge those who work hard among you, who care for you in the Lord and who admonish you. Hold them in the highest regard in love because of their work. Live in peace with each other.” 1 Thessalonians 5:10-13
Let’s Talk About Appreciation
- Sometimes it is easy for little ones to forget what Mom and Dad have done for them throughout the day. Point out some things that you have done for your children during the day or ask them to think of a few.
- Tell your children about people who are less fortunate. Pray for those people together.
- Remind your children that God created the Heavens and the Earth for them!
