Walking into a store recently, Sofi (age 6) saw a dollar on the ground & Lia (age 4) asked me if she could pick it up. I said “yes”, because otherwise it would just blow away. They were asking me, “Are we going to keep it?” I said, “I don’t know, we’ll see”. Because I thought what if we see someone looking for the dollar they dropped, then I would want to give it to them.
When we got to the entrance, there was a man asking for change, so I told Lia, “Give that dollar to that man”. So she said, “OK” and easily handed it over. They saw him again as we were leaving so they were asking me about it on the way home. They wanted to know, “Why was he still there?” I explained that he was asking for more money. Lia asked, “Is he poor?” and I said, “Yes.”
So then they were thinking about that for a while & then Sofi said, “I think God placed that $ there to use us to help that man.” And Lia said, “Yeah, because God can’t give him the money, so he wanted us to pick it up & give it to the poor man.”
