I have things I want to say, but no time to say them. There are grandkids at my house! So here is a little thought to ponder:
Living for others, commitment to God's redeeming purposes, is a means of grace. We give because of our faith, and it deepens as we give. If we permit ourselves and our people to give casually, we are really teaching contempt.
-- Richard S. Emrich
I've never heard of Mr. Emrich before. Might have to look him up. But it sounds like he knows a few things.
