Future Accountants

One of our church's traditions is for the children to collect the offering under the watchful eye of the ushers. Many of the kids are shy and often have to be guided, but two of them attack the task with enthusiasm.

They also have taken it upon themselves to straighten out the offering into a neat stack before taking the plates to the altar. They are the only ones that do this: carefully, almost lovingly, sorting the envelopes and cash (and yes, I supervise them closely).

Can one's career destiny be predicted at the age of seven?

For their sakes I hope bank tellers and accountants are still viable jobs in 15-20 years.
