Sharing Ourselves To Teach Sharing


"It takes an investment of time, thought, and energy to teach a child to willingly share with a cheerful heart. Most of all, it takes a real, live, loving example in front of them.

Are we willing to share with our children?
Do we cheerfully give of ourselves, or do our hearts say, “Mine!” when our little ones want or need our time and attention?

Do we communicate a begrudging, selfish attitude when we have to stop again to teach our children to not have begrudging, selfish attitudes?"

  2. Thank you for sharing! I just had a conversation w/ one of my little one's yesterday about sharing! When I asked him if he thinks Jesus would share with him he said 'yes mom, and I want to be like Jesus so I will share with my friends'...your blog is so encouraging!! Thank you!

  3. Thanks, ladies, I'm glad these wise words are encouraging to you! I need this one especially ... my heart does say "Mine!" too much.
