Sharing. One of the most important lessons in life. Who doesn’t want a kid who thinks of others? Let’s face it. We’re selfish. We know what we like, and we like what we like. Sometimes we want to keep what we like for ourselves. But when it comes to giving, God is pretty clear. He LOVES a cheerful giver. So, as we’re teaching our kids how to give, yes, we gotta do the obvious—teach them that all our money is God’s. And give 10% back to Him (minimum). But here are some not-so-obvious ideas: start a family ministry project. Maybe sponsor a child or a Keys for Kids Storyteller, help refugees or a local homeless shelter. What does this show? Love, one of God’s greatest commands.
