I was recently asked to share some thoughts at a Stewardship Committee meeting at our local conference office. One of my big messages was the way we ask for money, the words we use. They inspire no one. Often times we ask for money with such a negative outlook, “We need your money to keep the lights on!” or “Please give or else we won’t make budget!” We should be asking like we serve the God who owns the “cattle on a thousand hills.” We should ask like we believe God wants to do abundantly more than we could ever imagine with our finite offerings! That He wants to allow us to be a part of changing the WORLD! This video I think speaks to that!
My name is Chad Stuart, and I'm a preacher. Inevitably, I spend a lot of time speaking from “inside” the pulpit, however, this blog reflects thoughts I have beyond, or “outside” the pulpit. It represents my own thoughts on religion, spirituality, the Bible, family, leadership, church growth, and some random other stuff.
