“Does anyone have some money to share with Jesus today?” Miss Debbie asked.
“I do,” some of the toddlers in her Sunday school class answered.
“No,” several others responded with a pout.
Wanting each of her students to learn the concept of giving, Miss Debbie reached into her purse and passed out some change to the children who had forgotten. As the plate was passed, the young students cheerfully gave their coins.
The following week, Miss Debbie once again asked her young students if they had money to share with Jesus.
Just like the week before, she found that some had remembered their money and others had not.
Before Miss Debbie knew what was happening, a little two-year-old girl sprang to her feet. She went over to Miss Debbie’s purse, pulled out her checkbook, and brought it to her.
Taken back by this little girl’s actions, Miss Debbie told her to return the checkbook to her purse. The little girl instantly complied with Miss Debbie’s request and returned the checkbook to the purse.
A few minutes later after doing some more digging in Miss Debbie's purse, the little girl stood before her classmates with Miss Debbie’s change purse. Without even asking, the little girl opened it up and began handing out coins to all her classmates. ? Miss Debbie realized that she was the one being taught the lesson this week on being a cheerful giver.

Cute story--I wish you had expanded on it even more. You probably had 500 words left to develop this story--help us get to know Miss Debbie and the little girl as real people rather than characters who perform actions in a story.

This is a great start--I urge you to run with it.

Good illustration. Miss Debbie would have done well to write a good-sized cheque out to show her class that giving is in keeping with earning. Well done.

cute story. I agree with the others, I would like to know more about the teacher, the students and a little more detail. Keep writing!
