Today is Giving Tuesday, which is a fantastic way to follow-up the consumer driven, shopping frenzy of Black Friday and Cyber Monday. It’s also fitting that Giving Tuesday follows right after Thanksgiving Day. When I count my blessings and remember all of the things and people for which I am truly thankful, I am inspired to give.
There are a lot of fantastic charities and ministries out there, but this year my wife Susan and I are making a special Giving Tuesday donation to our local church, Discovery Church in Orlando.
Like so many churches across America, Discovery does so much good both locally and globally. I can’t think of a better place to give than to my local church, can you? Today, why don’t you consider giving a special gift to your own local church?
“Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.” (2 Corinthians 9:6-8)
