When I pay my tithing, Heavenly Father will bless me.
IDENTIFY THE DOCTRINE AND ENCOURAGE UNDERSTANDING (seeing a demonstration): Explain that tithing is giving one-tenth of the money you earn to the Lord through His Church. Show the children 10 coins. Ask them how many of the coins should be used to pay tithing. Show a tithing envelope and a donation slip, and explain that we pay tithing by filling out the donation slip, putting it in the envelope with our tithing, and giving it to the bishop or one of his counselors.
ENCOURAGE APPLICATION(playing a game and hearing testimonies): Display pictures and objects that represent blessings that come from paying tithing, such as temples, meetinghouses, a hymnbook, the Children's Songbook, a Primary Manual, and the scriptures. Tell the children that because of tithing funds the Church can provide these things. Cover the pictures and objects. Take away one or two. Remove the cover and ask the children to guess what is missing. Repeat several times. Explain that there are other blessings that come from paying tithing that cannot be seen (see 3 Nephi 24:10). Have one or two adults tell about blessings they have received from paying tithing.
