But who am I, and what is my people, that we should be able to make this freewill offering? For all things come from you, and of your own have we given you.” 1 Chronicles 29:14

Our treasurer Paul Rowley quoted these words on Thursday evening. In just two sentences we find that much of our protesting, our over-complicating, our ‘Umming’ and ‘Ahhhing’ over what we should give, is undone by these words of King David.

Today we find ourselves in a very similar position as we contemplate NOT Standing Still – our gift day. The focus of the giving is to develop the mission-life of ABC, or rather – to side with God in the work he is already doing. So let’s give to God what is already his and take a stand with the work he is already doing.
