This series at church has been really good. It is a hard series to do but Joe Boyd is doing great. He has talked about how the Elephant isn’t money but that it is God. This series is about how God has set up his economy and how fall into it. I read the book the Treasure Principal that was more about how we can pay our money forward. AKA the more we give away now the more that will be in heaven for us when we get there. Not sure that it will work quite that way because I think that in heaven we will all be equal but you never know with God. I do know that I want to invest into people here as much as I can and I want to teach my kids to do so.
Part of that investment will be going to this up and coming weekend when we do Turkey Fest with church. This is an opportunity for us to provide a Turkey dinner to a family in need. The kids and I have already decorated our box now we just have to go get the food to go in it. I am taking them with me to the store on Wednesday to get everything that is needed. I don’t know how much they are getting out of what I am telling that but at least I know that they are getting influced to invest in the Kingdom of God and give.
Chris and I are working on getting ourselves to a better place in life to get rid of our debt and become better stewards with God’s money. We have paid off a few small bills and are hitting some big ones. I think that Chris said by Feb. we should have one big one paid off. It will be great to get ourselves in a good situation and yet be able to give a lot away. I hope that we can eventually give more then 10% back to God. It will just take one step at a time.
