We’ve all experienced it. It happens at work and it happens at home. Even at church sometimes the elephant gets artfully ignored. But what happens when the elephant is actually acknowledged? When your pastor starts talking about it you might be persuaded that it’s actually the only thing the church cares about.
Perhaps it’s time to call the elephant by name: money.
The reality is, God has given us all kinds of resources that will shape our lives. Our money, our time and our talents are ours to invest for maximum impact. When those resources feel strained, it’s natural to hold tightly to them. But what if we could live lives that operate out of generosity instead of fear? What if we let go of the fear that we just don’t have enough to give? Or the fear that we just can’t get ahead, no matter how hard we try to save? And the fear that our contributions won’t be properly managed?
In this series we bring the elephant out of hiding and put it to work. In week three of this series, Mark Beeson addresses the thought behind generosity of, “It’s a scam.”
