All who are led by God’s Spirit are God’s sons and daughters. 15 You didn’t receive a spirit of slavery to lead you back again into fear, but you received a Spirit that shows you are adopted as his children. With this Spirit, we cry, “ Abba, Father. ” 16 The same Spirit agrees with our spirit, that we are God’s children. 17 But if we are children, we are also heirs. We are God’s heirs and fellow heirs with Christ, if we really suffer with him so that we can also be glorified with him.
It is never too early to teach children responsibility over their God-given talents and resources. Let the Children Give is an essential resource for this task in two important ways.

Perfect for preparing Sunday school and Vacation Bible School lesson plans, Let the Children Give is a valuable resource for anyone desiring to make a difference in the lives of children.
