Wealthy

Have you ever sat in church during a sermon about tithing, and could feel the tension building up in the room?  I sat through this on Sunday, and came out with a few thoughts.  When you look at other countries and compare their wealth to ours, we are rich!  What do we do to help others?

Abraham Lincoln once said, “You can see what God thinks of money when you see the people He gives it to.”  What does that say about us? 

I’m not sure that it’s enough for us to give our 10% and let the church dole it out.  Don’t get me wrong, I’m glad the church does this for me, and I support all the different fields that it goes into.  I just feel like there is more to do, personally.  Can we be wealthy in ways other than money?  I think so.  I’m feeling like witnessing, using the scriptures, and helping.  What do you think?  Will it work?  Will you try it too?
