Teaching Video #5: "First World Problems" (w/ grab-n-go lesson)

As we roll out of the Christmas Season and so many of our students are coming down from their American consumer high, maybe it would be a great time to start off the New Year with a reality check. Here is a great video to use to give your students some perspective called "First World Problems Anthem".

Teaching Verse to Use With Video:
 1 Timothy 6:17-19"  As for the rich in this present age, charge them not to be haughty, nor to set their hopes on the uncertainty of riches, but on God, who richly provides us with everything to enjoy. They are to do good, to be rich in good works, to be generous and ready to share, thus storing up treasure for themselves as a good foundation for the future, so that they may take hold of that which is truly life."

Quick "Grab N Go" Teaching Outline:
1. Your ARE Rich!- Mark 10:25
2. Warning to the Rich: Prov. 16:18
     - Don't Prideful
     - Don't Put Your Hope in Riches, It Can Fade Fast
3. Instructions for the Rich:  Matt. 6:20
      - Do Good with It
      - Use It for Good
      - Be Willing to Give it Away
      - Store up Riches in Heaven not Here!

Here is a Bonus Video: (a bit more funny, careful toward the end it uses the phrase- "shut the 'full cup' up!)
