This morning, my 5-year-old emerged from his class at church with a dollar bill.
The teacher attached a note explaining that the children had been instructed to pray and ask Jesus how they should use their dollar. Some might choose to buy a toy or candy, and that is fine. Some, however, might be led to do something different.
The lesson was tied to the boy who gave his give fish and two loaves to Jesus, who then multiplied it into food for the multitude. It’s an interesting lesson to pass on to children. But it’s also an interesting lesson and/or reminder to pass on to us as adults.
How often to we pray about how Jesus would use our money (or, rather, the money He has given us)? Do we believe that he can make more of it than we can? Food for thought.
