Let’s face it – money is a taboo topic in families. As parents, we’re not quite sure how to address it with our kids, so many of us simply choose not to. We do this because we either don’t feel qualified, we don’t think it’s important, or because we don’t know what to say on the topic. I think this will help.
There aren’t many more awkward situations than when you invite a neighbor to church, and within 20 minutes of them being there, they get passed the “plate”. You can try to downplay it all you want, but their perception is their reality; God is in it for the money.
