But be sure, too, that you give them the most precious gift of all... Faith. When you give it—you give the youngsters the world—and all. The wonderful part is that faith is yours to give... no matter who you are, what you do for a living, how much money you have in the bank. ' Faith is the gift you give a little at a time. Every week you and the children worship together at your church or synagogue. The youngsters see you ... the biggest, smartest, most important people in their world ... asking God for help, thanking Him for blessings. Then it's clear to them .. . here they can always find the strength they need, always find the happiness they want. Then you've done the best a parent—any parent—can do.
