Every time the offering plate went around, I encouraged my children to "put SOMETHING in," a penny, a nickel, a dime, a quarter, five dollars... something needed to be put in if it was a worthwhile cause.  If everyone put just a little bit in, the needs would be met!

I believe that training my children to put SOMETHING in has been a strengthening process:

*They don't have to feel that they have to cover the entire cost of funding something worthwhile; rather they can be even a small part of many worthwhile projects.

*They know they have given something to many amazing ventures.

*They have a passion and a background to put something in, even if a little bit of time to help others.

Challenge:  Try to find some worthwhile things to put something of yourself into with your children!  Make it a fun habit!
