I love to preach about giving. Why? Because it hits us directly in the gut. Our finances are tied directly to our heart. Jesus said, “For where you treasure is, there your heart will be also.” (Lk 12:34).
We all wrestle with money. It makes us happy, sad, excited, mad, and depressed. It is tied to our heart. Case in point: you reading this right now is causing some frustration, anxiety, or joy.
Last Sunday I took the gloves off and challenged our folks to put God to the test. We had a fun (and challenging) time. You can see the video here.
I did not have time on Sunday to go into my story of wrecking my fianance, robbing God, and learinig to give. Below is my story, including a cameo from our mutt Nestle, and some practical advice on getting your budget under control.
I’d love to hear your stories on giving, challenges, blessings, etc. Comment below.
