Giving One Tenth

Isaac has amazed us lately with what he is able to repeat. We often count out items we see around us and in books. It helps that he has a number puzzle he enjoys doing. But often as we count slowly, he is able to say the consecutive number clear as a bell. I don't think he quite understands what it means, but he knows that 3 always follows 2 and so forth. We decided to combine this with a lesson on tithing from Malachi 3:8-12.

So we laid out the numbers and he was excited to count the lemons, pennies and quarters we gave him. After counting them out, we had him choose one of the ten to give to the Lord, his tithe. We tried explaining how all our blessings are from the Lord and how a tenth is but a small amount to give back to Him. I'm pretty sure that all went over his head as he bounced from number to number, but I'm glad he had fun counting.
