Good morning boys and girls,
Welcome to worship today. So wonderful to see you. Thanks for joining me for this children's message. How are you? How am I? Fantastic!
I want to show you two things: An offering plate and a picture of Uncle Sam. Why Uncle Sam? Uncle Sam is America, and for this morning, Uncle Sam represents government.
The question today is: should we place our money in the offering plate for church missions or give taxes to Uncle Sam?
