The Princess: Did he die?
LESSON #3: Church is not a toll bridge We are not a cash or checkbook carrying family. So to all those potential thieves out there we are not a good target for you! After buying plants the day before (at a nursery that only excepts cash or checks) and literally counting pennies and dimes to find enough change, our cash was wiped out. As we drove into the parking lot at church yesterday morning, the princess asked for her money. We give her money to place in her Sunday School offering on most Sundays. I would have even given her a quarter, if I could find one. Needless to say, we were out of cash. So here goes the conversation:
Mama: Baby, we don't have any cash this morning so we will bring some next week, ok? The Princess: But Mama, they won't let me in if I don't have money to pay. Mama: Oh, well we don't give them money to pay for us to come in. This is church it is free. The Princess: Why do we give money then? Mama: Well, Jesus tells us to and then the church takes the money and gives it to hungry little children who don't have any money to buy food. The Princess: OK. So, as I dropped her off in Sunday School I saw her sweet preschool director and laughing I shared our brief conversation and suggested that, we might need to work on the tithing lesson for the kiddies. Her quote to the Princess: "Honey, this isn't a toll bridge."
