“Offer hospitality to one another without grumbling.” I Peter 4:9-10
This summer have your children or grandchildren use money they have saved or do some chores to earn money specifically designated for blessing others. Explain ahead of time what the money will be used for and how they will be involved.
Money in hand, go to a restaurant and collectively allow them to use their money to anonymously buy someone’s meal. If you pay for someone (like a man or woman in uniform) and have your kids to say to them, while looking in their eyes, thank you for serving our country.
The goal is for our children to have a heart for others and see money as being a tool to bless rather than hoard, waste, or seek to desire stuff. A good way to teach this concept is by allowing children to personally experience serving others.
