“First Fruit” Chews?
Tithe your Halloween candy – can you do that? Are you looking for a way to teach your children about stewardship? Consider asking your children to give 10% of the candy they receive from trick-or-treating. The process of thinking about giving away something they themselves like, and of caring for others, affirms not only the joy of giving, but the more intense joy of giving sacrificially. The donated candy will be put to good use in CSCK and Children’s Ministries. If you are up for a real challenge teach them about “first fruits” and giving God our best and not our leftovers. But that begs the question, “Which does God think is better…Snickers or Milky Way? Or maybe He’s more into Skittles.”
