Giving Means To Get Rid of Stuff We Don't Want

True story told my a member of my staff:

Mom, Dad and their 8 year daughter were greatly moved by the message to give and share.  After church, they went home and began to identify the things that they could give away--including lots of clothes, toys, etc.

The six year old, looking at the collection that was accumulating observed "oh, I see, giving means to get rid of the stuff we don't want anymore!"
