Lessons from a Child

"It's Only A Dollar"
 A Generous Heart in Action

A young college sophomore from North Buffalo Community Church, 
who is currently working 2 jobs this summer decided to give his younger 
sister (8 years old) a one dollar gift. What would you expect an 8 year old 
girl do with a one dollar bill? If I were her I’d head straight to the store and 
buy as much candy as I could, as quickly as I could.

This little girl instead inserted the dollar into a church envelope and wrote on 
the outside that this was an offering from her and her 2 other brothers 
(one older and one younger). She split her gift 3 ways (33 and 1/3% ea.)
and gave it to God. That’s what I’m talking about, a generous heart in action.
