The Cheerful Giver
One Sunday morning a father gave his son a couple of quarters and a dollar.
“Put the dollar in the offering,” the father said, “then you can have the fifty cents for ice cream.”
When the boy came home, he still had his dollar. “Why didn’t you put the dollar in the offering?” his father asked.
“Well, it was like this,” the boy explained. “The preacher said that God loves a cheerful giver. I could give fifty cents a whole lot more cheerfully than I could a dollar.”
