I have to say thanks to Amy at "Thoughts from an Overthinker" for linking to the below post, thus allowing me to discover it. It is about money and truth and the church and poverty and the Gospel--topics that are much more complex than I can began to address or summarize.
My own sin in this area is forgetting and closing my eyes...I don't want to forget what I have seen of suffering and poverty. I don't want to stop asking the hard questions of myself and asking God to open my eyes, my heart, my hands...how much is enough to keep and how much to give away? God didn't give me what I have so that I can hoard it for myself and those few people in my family. He gave it to me as a means to love others, show His love, give as He has given to me, and live the Gospel (not just preach it). Suffering is real, and as a child of God, I am supposed to use whatever He chooses to give me to give to and love on others. I want to love God and desire Him, not the stuff He gives.
Read it. I think you will be glad you did.
Loving and Learning,
