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

Sermon Illustrations

An evangelist accompanied a missionary on a missionary trip overseas. While there, one of the natives that had given his life to the Lord asked the evangelist, "Preacher, if the Lord gave you two houses, would you give one of them to the Lord?" "Certainly," the evangelist replied. The native continued, "Preacher, if the Lord gave you two million dollars, would you give one million to the Lord?" "Absolutely," the evangelist replied. Then the native asked, "Preacher, if the Lord gave you two cars, would you give one to the Lord?" The evangelist stood there for a moment, bowed his head, and walked away. "What is wrong with him?" the native asked. The missionary responded, "He actually HAS two cars!"

We should realize that no matter what we "have," it was all given to us by God and we should be willing to use it for His service at a moment’s notice.
