A God Lesson - Giving

I love when one of the kids has a "God moment".  Seemingly a small, fleeting moment, but really such a treasure in a day or week that might otherwise be causing me to question my parenting abilites (or lack thereof).

Last week, our 9-year-old was obsessed about a Lego set he wanted to get.  He "needed" a way to earn money!!  Since there are no employment options in our home, he set out to collecting spare change.

He told me this morning that he decided to put it all in the Alabaster, a special "spare change" offering our church collects for foreign mission work.  He said, "I was just thinking, our babysitter comes, and she is always so nice and brings stuff for us.  I wanted to give to others too."

"It is more blessed to give than to receive."
Acts 20:35
