Just a quick note to those of you that put money in the coffer of your local church on Sunday. It’s quite possible that the Lord did not move in your heart to show your faithfulness so that now he can bless you with a houseboat. It might be that he stirred up in your heart to give, so that when I (or your pastors) get a call on Monday morning from a family that is about to be homeless we have the resources to help.
Give the King a carrot and not yourself a horse.
If you gave in the hopes of getting a houseboat, I must confess I’m praying that the Lord blesses you far more than you can imagine. That might mean no houseboat. But it may be that He gives you something far more valuable; namely, Himself.
Thanks for your faithfulness and your love for Christ.
