For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.Matthew 6:21
What a blessing it is to see so many generous people mobilizing resources! Today, let’s celebrate God’s goodness and His love, manifested through giving, both here in the Carolinas, and around the world. We have the rare privilege to have a front-row seat to see where you are sending your treasure.
According to Matthew’s Gospel, that shows us exactly where your hearts are. Your hearts are loving those in need, feeding the hungry, housing the homeless, protecting the vulnerable, healing the sick, and so much more.
It’s beautiful to see God’s hand in all of this. Here in the Carolinas, you’ve given almost $9 million to organizations from your Giving Funds in March and April. And in case you’re wondering, compared to the same time last year, that’s an increase of 75%! God has certainly been working in us, both individually and collectively, during this unprecedented time. And on behalf of those who have been impacted, and whose lives have been changed forever by your obedience, your worship, and your love…we celebrate together!
The needs are great. As you continue to pray, give, and serve, our prayer is that you will feel God’s presence, and His pleasure, as you love Him by loving others.
