Charity:

Kid 1 sitting at the lunchroom table.

Kid 2 sits next to him.

Kid 2: No way! You got cookies?

Kid 1: Yeah. My mom made these last night.

Kid 2: Ugggh. My mom never bakes cookies.

Kid 1: Would you like one?

Kid 2: For real?

Kid 1: Here.

Fairness:

Kid 2 sits next to him.

Kid 2: No way! You got cookies?

Kid 1: Yeah. My mom made these last night.

Kid 2: Ugggh. Not fair! My mom never bakes cookies.

Kid 1: Would you like one?

Kid 2: One? You have three.

Kid 1: Here. Have one.

Kid 2: It’s good. We should split the 3rd one.

Kid 1: Ummm…

Kid 2: How is it fair that you get two and I only have one?

Kid 1: I just gave you one.

Kid 2: I am just sayin’. It hardly seems fair! If you don’t share I’ll tell Mrs. Engels!

Kid 1: I did share! And I didn’t have to. Jeez…

Kid 2: It’s not fair.

Kid 1: Life isn’t fair.

Mrs Engels walking past table.

Mrs. Engels: whatcha got there, Kid 1?

Kid 1: Huh?

Mrs. Engels: Let’s see what you got. Ahhhh, cookies. Those look good.

Kid 1: My mom made a bunch of them for her Church group. She put some of them in my bag.

Mrs. Engels: Well, isn’t that nice for you!

Kid 1: Yeah.

Mrs. Engels: What about you, Kid 2?

Kid 2: I don’t have any cookies.

Mrs. Engels: Hmmmm.

Kid 2: It’s not fair.

Mrs. Engels: Well, I’d have to agree. Kid 1, give Kid 2 some cookies. It’s only fair.

Kid 1: Huh?

Mrs. Engels: Your a Christian, after all. Give Kid 2 some cookies.

Kid 1: I gave him a cookie yeasterday. But then he argued with me about how it was unfair that I had two left and had only given him one. He wanted me to give him another.

Kid 2: No! I wanted you to give me half of the other, so it would be fair. We’d each have had one and a half cookies then. Instead of you having two and me only getting one.

Kid 1: I didn’t have to give you the first one.

Mrs. Engels: I though Christians were supposed to be Charitable. Now give him one and you keep one.

Kid 1: What?

Mrs. Engels? C’mon. What would Jesus do?

Kid 1: Ummm…

Mrs. Engels: Now do it.

Kid 1: Okay, I guess.

Kid 2: Hey! That leaves him with two and me with one!

Kid 1: But my mom packed those for me!

Mrs. Engels: You mean to say their yours, right?

Kid 1: Well I guess.

Kid 2: You’re greedy!

Kid 1: I just gave you one.

Kid 2: Only because she made you. And it’s still not entirely fair.

Mrs. Engels: He’s got a point. Here, let me take that third cookie.

Kid 1: But… hey!

Kid 2: Hey!

Mrs. Engels: Now it’s fair. These are good.Kid 2, you happy now?

Kid 2: I guess.

Mrs. Engels: This way everyone is happy!

Kid 1: What?

Kid 2: Hey, whatcha bringin’ tomorrow for me?
