Books of the Bible: Deuteronomy

Gifts aren’t given to decisions; they are given to the place you have decided God is at work. If your gift makes you grumpy – are you in the right place? 


The God who leads us beside still waters is also the God of our most disturbing provocations.


There is no valid appreciation of what God has given us, without the inclusion of foreigners: those who are in our neighborhoods and those who are at our borders.


The right time for sabbath is not when our work is finished, but when it has piled up until we cannot see over it into a hopeful future.


The life of our faith and the life of our nation are dependent upon those who have experienced joys and pains, agonies and ecstasies, sharing with those who do not yet know.


God is not just big, but big-big! Big-big enough to not be swayed by privilege. Big-big enough to fairly treat parentless children. Big-big enough for all to have what they need.


God, nudge me out of analysis paralysis when it comes to knowing what you want me to do, and then acting on it. You have said it’s not too hard. I’m taking you at your word. Amen.

Your pastor probably doesn't think they're so good at raising money.
