Lent is a beautiful opportunity to offer ourselves to our Lord. An offering box is a tangible way to make our offerings. It can be used for many different types of offerings:
- Monetary offerings, especially for money saved from fasting
- Small sacrifices made during the day
- Prayers offered
- Offerings of service or good deeds
Making an offering box for your family, classroom, or youth ministry room is easy. Just start with a shoe-box. Let the children or students decorate it. You can use markers or Christian stickers or whatever you like. Place it in a prominent place in your home, such as a prayer table. Place a stack of small slips of paper next to it and a pencil. Then everyone can place their monetary offerings in the box or they can write on a piece of paper what they are offering and place it in there.
This is a nice way to think about all of the things we can offer to our Lord Jesus Christ in response to all of the many gifts we have received.
