This book willhelp you deal with "special appeals" Aug 26, 2004
Dr. Willmer's book on stewardship gives a fresh look at core stewardship issues. What you do with "your stuff" does matter to God. This book gives practical help as well to set up your own consistent periodic giving program. The author challenges the "I give when I have extra after expenses" mentality. It helped us ward off the special appeals from the dozens of needy and often worthy causes from mail and telemarketers. It helped my wife and I further priortize our own values and what sort of Christian and related causes and programs we wanted to support.
God and 'My ' Stuff Feb 12, 2002
I've always known that as a Christian I need to give back to God in gratitude, but I hang on to 'my' stuff pretty tightly. This book emphasizes that giving is about worship of God and moves me from being earthbound in my thinking and lifestyle to focusing on life as a Heavenward journey and laying up treasures there. This is an excellent review of Christian stewardship for anyone who claims Christ as Lord of their life.
