Episode Theme: Trust in God's provision

1. Hebrews 13:5 reminds you that you should be satisfied with what you have, because God is always with you. How often are you satisfied with what you have?

2. In 1 Timothy 6:10 Paul wrote “The love of money causes all kinds of trouble.” He was describing how some people think believing in God will make them rich. But Paul said that believing in God will only make people rich because they will be happy. He warned Timothy that getting more things won't make us happy. As you listen to this episode, think about the kind of trouble that the love of money could cause.

Memory Verse
“Don’t fall in love with money. Be satisfied with what you have. The Lord has promised that he will not leave us or desert us.” Hebrews 13:5

After You Listen

What an important mystery for the lizards to solve! In this story, Mr. Lardner thought that having the diamond would make him content. He was even willing to steal to get it!

Here is another mystery for you to solve—why is it so hard for people to be content?

What are some things you think would make you more content? Some people might say more money or more things would make them happy. But, once they get the money or the thing they want, they still want more. Have you ever felt like that?

In Matthew 6:25-34, Jesus said, “I tell you not to worry about your life. Don’t worry about having something to eat, drink, or wear. Isn’t life more than food or clothing?” Then he pointed out some birds and some flowers to his disciples. They don’t work, but God takes care of them He told his disciples to not worry, but to “put God’s work first and do what he wants. Then the other things will be yours as well.” When you put God first, you have everything you need.
