Living Water Stimulates Our Dreams
Many of us read the church’s financial report in the bulletin each week hoping our weekly offerings are enough to meet our budget. Our offerings support ministries that greatly impact our congregation and the lives of many others. This week’s theme is meant to stimulate us to think about the future beyond our current ministries and dream about more than simply meeting our 2019 budget.
In the third verse of the famous hymn “Praise to the Lord, the Almighty,” we sing a short, powerful phrase, “Ponder anew what the Almighty can do.” What if COS had even greater financial resources at our disposal? What if, like the Master’s servant in Matthew 25, five talents became ten? Let us “ponder anew” the ways in which God can use our thoughtful and generous giving to expand his kingdom.
