    “I do not believe one can settle how much we ought to give. I am afraid the only safe rule is to give more than we can spare. In other words, if our expenditure on comforts, luxuries, amusements, etc, is up to the standard common among those with the same income as our own, we are probably giving more

    Contributed by Lynn Malone on Jun 13, 2005

    Finally, we give, give, give. Jesus left his heavenly throne, laid aside the glory that was his, and came to us. He gave his life on the cross of Calvary that we might be redeemed and reconciled to God. He gave us life, and he has blessed us beyond even our ability to measure. Giving is a more

  • A Giving Testimony

    A GIVING TESTIMONY I have experienced this both personally and in our church. As a church, when we began to support missions with faith promises – God began to pour blessings to our church.

  • The Giving Tree

    THE GIVING TREE Once or twice in a lifetime you hear a story that leaves an indelible mark on your heart and mind. Such is Shel Silverstein’s story, "The Giving Tree."

    GIVING BACK Yesterday Marylu and I went to the Ko-ko-mah encampment as we do every year. We love the smell of campfires cooking food, crafts and arts done in an 1800's style, the music, the costumes, the re-enactments.

    THE GIVING HEART The heart does not receive blood to store it up. While it pumps blood in at one valve, it sends it out at another. The blood is always circulating everywhere, and is never stagnant. The same is true of all the fluids in a healthy body; they are in a constant state of more

    "Never Give In" "This is the lesson: never give in, never give in, never, never, never, never—in nothing, great or small, large or petty—never give in except to convictions of honor and good sense. Never yield to force; never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy." more
