.....so why not take 20 minutes and explore giving in a new way?
This time of year the charities and places to give are too numerous to count. It overwhelms me every year because I can't give to all of them. Then I saw this video. I learned that God doesn't want our money. God doesn't even need our money. The reason God asks us to give is surprising and amazing at the same time. Once I got it right, it was easy to decide how much and where to give - not just this holiday season, but on a regular basis.
And....He doesn't only want us to give Him our money....watch this video to find out what else He wants. Andy Stanley is an amazing speaker. Funny and entertaining. Not preachy. But it's the concepts he brings forth that changed the way I view giving this year.
I apologize that I can't provide the link. I still haven't found the secret passageway between Typepad and YouTube since I signed on YouTube with Google. Just type "Andy Stanley big faith" in the search. There are 6 videos. Watch part four. And then you will have a new view. No one can explain it any better than this.
And so, as another day goes by, thanks to Andy Stanley my faith has grown by leaps and bounds, and ...I have written.
