We always find money for our priorities. Right? We always allocate money to those things that we deem to be important. That’s why people spend money on sports, for Christmas presents, at the mall, or the movie theater.
Perhaps this is why Jesus said, “Where your money is, there will your heart be also” (Matt. 6:21).
Changed-lives are more important to me than the Interstate Fair.
The “Signs of Life” special offering is coming along pretty good. We’ve asked you to give sacrificially and many of you are responding generously. I plan to ask our Finance Department to provide me with an itemized list of the names of those who have given sacrificially to this effort, so that I might personally thank each and every one by way of personalize letter from me. In fact, I think an appreciation banquet after the first of the year may be appropriate too.
Thanks again. Your giving is going to make a significant difference for us in 2009.
