The theme is based on Acts 20 verse 35:
“You’ll not likely go wrong here if you keep remembering that our master said, ‘you’re happier giving than getting.’”
It’s good to share!
Most people who have been around kids will have heard similar to this:
“Come on now, you can share your toys with Harry. Let Grace have a turn please! Jack will give it back once he’s played with it, won’t you Jack?”
With encouragement from Patch the Pumpkin, children can learn to be generous with what they have and with each other.
It’s important to lead by example
The Bible begins by painting the picture of God existing before anything. From nothing He created, and provides everything for us to enjoy His good world. Partners and co-rulers over creation. God led by example.
Research shows that generous people feel happier and healthier. They’re more confident about the closeness of their relationships, feel they have more friends, and that friends will be there for them. Don’t we all want that for ourselves and our children?
