money in your pocket – again!
[posted by Sarabeth Jones]
One more story in response to Craig’s challenge to add to these two:
My experience with the money assignment went a little different than I thought it would. I went all week and saw no one I was supposed to give money to.
Then last week I was talking to someone who shared a struggle they were having. The need was so great I knew I could not cover it. I left them with a word of encouragement and a hug. About 10 minutes later it came to me that I could do something and there was a blank check in my purse. Yes, the amount – while not enough to make a big difference – was more than I ever carry in my pocket. I don’t feel like it was me giving the money, God gave them the money; I just wrote the check.
This was totally different from any other experience I have had helping people in need.
Sarabeth again: so where are you with this? Do you have a story to share? Are you still carrying the money in your pocket? Do you think the whole idea is crazy? Email us or leave a comment…Categories: faith in action, sunday mornings
