Great Blog Post: The Economy is Down...

I came across this post, a great reminder of God's provision for us in all circumstances.  T.J. Addington is a Senior Vice President with the EFCA and the leader of ReachGlobal, the international mission of the EFCA. 

These thoughts remind me of this verse - Luke 6:38.  We are used to the NIV version...

"Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down,
shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap.
For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.” 

The Message puts this verse in a great new light...

"Give away your life; you'll find life given back,
but not merely given back—given back with bonus and blessing.
Giving, not getting, is the way. Generosity begets generosity."

Take a few minutes to read this great post:  The economy is down so what do I do with my giving?
