Modeling Giving

Being a giving person is definitely a mark of Christ in our lives. As a new mom, I am very interested in how to help my son grow into being a cheerful giver. I just ran across this article from Sticky Church that discusses the importance of parents modeling giving to their children.

As we work with youth and their families, it’s important for parents to understand how important it is for them to model giving to their children and youth. As people who work with youth and young adults, we need to be sure that money is not a taboo topic. While we shouldn’t flaunt our giving, it is important to discuss money, especially in relation to giving to the church.

How do you teach your students to give? How do you discuss giving with families in your ministry setting?
