I am reminded of the simple truths that God has infinite wisdom, infinite love, and infinite resources. He rewards sacrifice and humility, and those who give in His name will be rewarded and sustained. If he can feed thousands from a little bread and fish, he can do the same with whatever we give. My Dad, who is my hero and a role model for me in so many of life's pathways, says this: "You can only keep what you give away." You see, in God's economy, souls are valuable; not wealth. God is the one with all the money anyway. Wealth comes and goes; we live a while and die. Some die rich and some die poor, but ultimately, everybody stands in front of God equally penniless. If we have nothing to show for what we have been given, what has this threescore-and-ten been about, anyway? So, I think I know at least part of what the Great Teacher is trying to get into my thick skull: "I've got this, Bill. I have come through for you, and I will again. Just do what I tell you. Don't worry about the money. TRUST me, and you will be fine." I get that, Lord. Finally, I think I am beginning to understand. Posted by Bill Moak at 1:21 PM
