Sharing with the Needy

There are lots of people in our churches with needs nowadays. And, our churches also have many people with more resources than they can use.

Have you seen the storage places an individual or family can rent? It’s extra space to put stuff they want but don’t really need. I have a feeling Christians might rent some of those places, which isn’t wrong. It’s just that some of our other church people could possibly use the very things being stored.

Let me write that we need to devise ways that the excess some of us have can be shared. It’s probably more a matter of networking than anything else.

The combining of resources—that’s definitely a skill the church needs to work to improve. But, it’s not something new and revolutionary. Acts 4:32 reads: “All the believers were one in heart and mind. No one claimed that any of their possessions was their own, but they shared everything they had.” As an obvious result, there was no needy person among them. I really like that.

I am grateful that I continue to hear how God is using my latest book entitled The Sermon Sucking Black Hole—Why You Can’t Remember on Monday What Your Minister Preached on Sunday. This book is available at by clicking here.

This book gives some solid tips to the people sitting in the congregation to help them remember what you’ve said from the pulpit when they come to worship services in the church where you serve as pastor.
