I'm visiting my family this week and attended my parents church in NY. The guest preacher said these exact words in the conclusion of his message on missions.
"It doesn't take an economic genius to know that you won't have any money to give if you keep spending all of your money on yourself." Dave Hertwick
There you have it. Whether I am in Washington or NY, a non-denominational, a baptist or an Assembly of God church, I am getting the same message. Does God ever do this to you?
