heard....

.....this thought-provoking sermon yesterday.


What do you think?

Then, heard a sermon by David Jeremiah entitled, "High Definition Giving". (Sorry, this has to be ordered on line - no text available.)

Then I heard this.

I especially liked the part about establishing the habit of saving to that you would have money available to give to those in need.

I would really be interested in hearing your reaction to these two links.

I agree almost 100% with the "Teaching Children to Manage Money" link. Some pretty solid advice there. Many of the same concepts I have been taught and follow to this day.
I disagree with the sermon in the first link. Too often "giving away possessions" and/or frugality are tied to goodness. The two are not linked. It is very possible in this life to do well financially, enjoy a comfortable lifestyle, and still be a solid and giving member of a society. It happens everyday. Not all needy are good and worthy....not all financially well off are bad or selfish. Not by a longshot.
Now be careful when you ask for an opinion....you may just get it ! :>))

Also...it looks like you have a hacker or virus (see above !)

Anon. I appreciate the time and effort you took in reading the links and commenting.


I guess my 'take-away' from the sermon was different than yours. I want to hold on to our material blessings with a looser grip. I want to believe that if someone needed something I would give it to them. Not because they deserve it, but because I have been blessed and in turn can bless others. Because I have been blessed beyond belief.

I'm not sure the pastor was tying the giving away of possessions to goodness as much as to obedience and freedom.

My two cents. Thanks again so much for taking the time....

Interesting side of it. I did not look at it that way. I see your point. I really liked the one article in particular.
Good stuff
