Focus on the Sunday Gospel to Celebrate the 8th Sunday in Ordinary Time.
Use this unit study to help teach children that they should not be greedy nor put material possessions at the center of their lives. God should be the focus and He will provide us what we need because He loves us. This lesson is based on Christ's teaching in the Gospel of St. Matthew 6:24-34.
In our lesson this week, Christ teaches on the subject of earthly possessions. He says that it is impossible to serve both God and our own personal greed at the same time. He also says that we shouldn’t worry ourselves about anything since God will provide us with what we need.
