Thoughts on Faith and Giving
As followers of Jesus, it is important that we be good stewards of the freedom graced to us.
The time to begin thinking about a fall 2022 stewardship campaign is NOW.
… there are people who actually have to run for their lives.
When you’ve really made some money, stop; go be a writer.
Our Foundation has received a lot of questions regarding upcoming changes in the United Methodist Church. What people want to know is, “Will the Foundation change?”
When people change their giving, it means something has changed in them.
As we have been faithful in this life, we must be faithful as we move to the next life.
…God is made alive to us, and to the world, when we live out the divine wishes and worldview.
When someone gives for the first time, or pledges their gift for the first time, we need to swing into action.
Grief is difficult enough without the added confusion of navigating a person’s chaotic estate.
…all things are not equal. The sooner we wrap our head around that, the better.
…if we do what we have always done, things won’t look much different in 2022 than they did in 2021.
Many things conspire to throw us off our discipleship script. This is never more true than at Christmas.
Wanda told him, “Of course you can. That’s what grandmas do…feed everyone.”
The most neglected part of any stewardship campaign is follow-up.
…because inflation was at a higher rate than the interest on their money, they actually lost purchasing power…meaning their $300,000 was worth less in 2021 than it was in 2009. That doesn’t feel very good.
Truly, the sign of a good steward isn’t just in achieving for God…sometimes it is about letting go for God.
A profound truth about life is that we don’t tend to see things as they are. We see them as we are!
Being able to be content in any and every situation—now that is worth more than money!
There is a voice within your heart, a voice that comes to us when we desire to live in the will and way of the Lord.
