Families are the best places to cultivate generous hearts. It starts with engaging our children in discussions about resources, sharing, and our responsibility to be agents of God’s Kingdom. But to be real and effective, families need to practice generosity together. This can mean going on a mission or service project together. It can mean discussing and voting on a mission investment the family will decide on. It could involve exploring how purchases connect with broader social responsibilities or environmental impacts. It should mean honoring examples of generosity inside and outside the family and teaching children and youth to set aside some of their income for God.
