December 11: Pass the blessing!

*Today's gift is a large bag of M&M's.

  • Read I Timothy 6:18

"Command them to do good, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share."

  • Give the gift to one child to open.

  • Ask that child how it feels to open such a treat.

  • Talk with all the children about special gifts your family has received in the past.

  • Point out the gifts God gives us all the time (food, a smile, talents, a house, etc.).

  • Use the verse to explain that God instructs us to share what we have.

  • Use the M&M's to show your children how you will use the gift from one child to share with lots of people.

  • Combine the M&M's to make a treat for your postal carrier, bus driver and/or Sunday school teacher.

  • Package the treats to give away and thank your children for being willing to share.

  • Pray with your family. Ask God to give you a heart that is always generous and willing to share.
