PEARLS: 5/27)18

PEARLS: 5/26/18

REAL: For God so loved the world,[a] that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16

CULTURED: If you are out of the fold and away from God, put your name in the words of John 3:16 and say, “Lord, it is I. I’m the cause and reason why Thou didst on earth come to die.” That kind of positive, personal faith and a personal Redeemer is what saves you. A.W. Tozer

God prospers us not to raise our standard of living, but our standard of giving.

Stewardship Thought for the Week

We are hard pressed on every side but not crushed, perplexed but not in despair; persecuted but not abandoned; struck down but not destroyed. Thus this verse; 2 Corinthians 4:8-9 remind us of our state at times in which we share our gifts with others; that is, those who are reluctant to receive them since we can't 'force' them upon anybody.
