Jacob's Generosity

We've been teaching Jacob the importance of supporting the church financially. Every week we give him a dollar to put in the collection basket. He's so used to giving the dollar bill during the offertory that he will ask for money (rather loudly), sometimes even during the homily. It's a source of embarrassment and pride for us.

The other day Jacob and I were in my bedroom playing. Jacob found a penny on the floor. With an angelic smile, Jacob said, "Jacob put in basket." I smiled to see his philanthropic spirit growing. He then walked over and put the penny in the laundry basket, cackling with glee. I guess we still have some work to do.
