Each year, our church takes some time to consider what we are doing with our financial stewardship in impacting our world with the gospel. I was greatly encouraged by Pastor Paul’s message last Sunday evening as we asked the question from Matthew 6: “Am I A Heavenly Hoarder?” As a follower of Christ, I must regularly ask myself whether I truly am leveraging my time and finances for the Kingdom of God.
Last Fall, Laurie and I had the opportunity to plant in our flower beds as we actively prepared for the coming winter. As a transplant from the great state of California I anxiously looked forward to the end of winter and transition into spring. When the flowers and foliage began to appear, I daily would “inspect” the new growth.
