Some thoughts from Gene Roehlkepartain about nurturing financial generosity in children and adolescents. Of course, as Ivy Beckwith and I write in chapter 10 of Children’s Ministry in the Way of Jesus, we need to teach children not only financial generosity, but also a generosity of spirit, which means that they give of their money, their time, their resources, and their selves in the quest to join God in pursuing justice in the world. But teaching generosity in terms of our finances is one good way to start imagining a broader vision for generosity with young people.
