The Plate Thing


After church yesterday a young boy handed me a drawing on a piece of scrap paper (the product label of an article of clothing) and asked with a big smile on his face, “Can I do this next week?”

I glanced at the drawing but couldn’t figure out exactly what it depicted.  I responded, “What are you wanting to do?”

He said, “You know … the plate thing in church.”

This recently baptized second grader was seeking to help take up the offering in worship.  I immediately walked him over to our deacon responsible for recruiting the offering team and said, “You’ve got extra help next week.”

May we all be so eager to serve.
