Counsels on Sabbath School Work


Chapter 5—Gathering Weekly Mission Offerings

Thanksgiving for Past Achievement

We thank God that our Sabbath schools have contributed enough to advance many a precious enterprise. Children and youth have given their pennies, that, like little rivulets, have supplied a stream of beneficence. Children should be educated in such a way that they may perform unselfish acts which heaven will rejoice to see. When the dew of youth is upon them, children should be trained how to do service for Christ. They should be taught self-denial.—Testimonies on Sabbath-School Work, 113. CSW 129.1
