Tithing is an important concept to teach children at a young age. Consistency is key because habits will be made which will affect the rest of their lives. When I was a child I would not tithe for weeks and then suddenly I would give a large amount. Because I did not learn to be consistent at a young age, I have to be very intentional about remembering to give each week.
A great way of teaching them to tithe is to help them break their money down into three categories savings, tithing, and spending. Good Gravy has come up with a great way to teach this concept using mason jars.

“Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.”
