"Double Blessing challenges us to reframe our perception of blessing, seeing God's gifts as opportunities for increased generosity." —Pastor Louie Giglio

The story is told of the great preacher D.L. Moody who went to an art gallery in Chicago there he saw a painting .called “The Rock of Ages.”

The painting showed a person with both hands clinging to a cross firmly embedded in a rock,.

While the stormy sea smashed against the rock the person clung tightly with both hands to that cross.

Years later D.L. Moody discovered another picture very similar to the first. This one also showed a person in a storm clinging tightly to the cross….but with the other hand the person was reaching out to someone who was just about to drown.
