WPC Warm Up, October 27, 2014
Several years ago I spent two hours with a man I had never met. We talked about some important personal struggles, and we prayed together. He left my office. Five minutes later he returned with an envelope. Inside was a check for $100,000 made out to WPC. Why did he do this? He later told me he wanted to say "thanks". Not to me. To God. I told him we would use this gift carefully and effectively. Read I Timothy 6:17–19. There is nothing wrong with wealth. Not a thing. Neither is there anything inherently good about poverty. Wealth and possessions are our means for investing and extending God's influence on this earth in these days. This is not simple or easy to do. It takes discipline, and character. How do your possessions position you to be God's person doing God's will this week?
