Here we have compiled a collection of Biblical and Christian illustrations on the topic of giving.
Church on a Dime
A man and his ten-year-old son were on a fishing trip miles from home. At the boy’s insistence, they decided to attend the Sunday worship service at a small rural church. As they walked back to their car after the service, the father was filled with complaints. “The service was too long,” he lamented. “The sermon was boring, and the singing was off key.” Finally the boy said, “Daddy, I thought it was pretty good for a dime.”
That’s Not My Job
This is a story about four people named Everybody, Somebody, Anybody, & Nobody. There was an important job to be done and Everybody was sure that Somebody would do it. Anybody could of done it, but Nobody did it. Somebody got angry about that, because it was Everybody’s job. Everybody thought Anybody could do it, but Nobody realized that Everybody wouldn’t do it. It ended up that Everybody blamed Somebody when Nobody did what Anybody could of done.
