Rewards are an important part of Christianity,
and should be of your children's church. The Bible often speaks of
God's rewards for us, not only down here on earth, but up in heaven.
I like to reward the kids for what good things they do. It gives
the kids a reason to be good and to learn, and it lets them know you care
about them enough to go out of your way to do something special for them.
**Many people worry this will cause the
children to do things just for the reward. If you see
this happening, simply take the rewards away for a couple of weeks, then
start over again. I call this the Adam, Moses, Jesus rule.
God gave Adam a lot of freedoms, but when Adam blew it, God came
down hard with the law (Moses). Then came the forgiving grace
of Jesus, putting us back into fellowship with God.
