A Focus on Stewardship
God enables us to give when we have nothing to give. What an awesome God! Counsels on Stewardship, pg 120 puts it this way, “Some are willing to give according to what they have… They have no income that they can spare from the necessities of their families. But there are many of this class who might ask themselves the question, ‘Am I giving according to what I might have had?’”
