Purpose: To teach family members the importance of having a budget, sticking to a budget, controlling our finances and avoiding unnecessary debt.
Hymn: “Count Your Blessings”
Scripture: 2 Kings 4:1-7
Lesson: In a message from President Ezra Taft Benson in 1987, he shared the scripture story found in 2 Kings of a women who had a debt and almost had to sell her children. The wise counsel he gives us in the message is, “Pay thy debt and LIVE!” This timeless counsel is the same for us today.
