Presentation: Leader discovers an envelope.
He holds it up for all to see. Well look at this! This
envelope must have been left here for someone special.” (He
smells it.) “Hmmm, hmmm! This sure smells pretty!

know, when someone is in love, they’ll give all kinds of gifts
and cards to their ‘Sweety-pie.’ That’s right!
You know why? Because in 1 Corinthians 13:5 it says that
love is not selfish. That means that if you love someone,
you’ll find it easy to give gifts, time, and all kinds of things
to the person you love.”
we read the letter? Let’s do it.” Open
the envelope and read the letter out loud with a shocked look.
“Well, obviously whoever wrote this is willing to give something
to his or her ‘honey bunny!’”

adults put their tithes or offerings in an envelope when they
give. Today, let’s think of that offering envelope as an
envelope which we may use to send some of our love to God.”
Place the dollar bill in the offering envelope. “Let’s send
him a ‘love letter’ with our tithes and offerings to show Him
that we love Him with all of our hearts.”
