“From Getter to Giver”

I love the old story about the preacher who introduced the morning offering and then handed the offering plates to his ushers.  After a few minutes they returned the totally empty plates to the preacher.  Without missing a beat, the seasoned pastor raised his voice in prayer: “Lord, I simply want to say thank You that we got the plates back.  Amen!”

That’s right, I plan to talk about giving this Sunday and what it looks like to move from “getter” to “giver.”  I think you’d agree giving really isn’t a matter of can or can’t, it’s a matter of will or won’t.  Our key verse for Sunday is Acts 20:35.

You should remember the words of the Lord Jesus: “It is more blessed to give than to receive.”

Learning to be more generous,
