II Corinthians 9:7 ” Each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.”

As Believers we are called to be a generous people…and this was displayed vividly this morning in Church.  Our Pastor announced that as we left each family would be receiving a plain white envelope with cash inside ranging from $20- $100.  We were to consider this a starting point to bless others during this holiday season.  The Lord has called all of us  to be missional…reaching outside the Church walls to help others.  For we are to be His ambassadors… shining His light, expanding His Kingdom, and seeking to leave an eternal impact on our community and world. (A direct quote from the note enclosed in the envelope.)  As I hold this bill in my hand,  I know the Lord will not only direct us as to how much we are to add to it, but who we should bless with it.
