As you consider your 2017 commitment/pledge to Cornerstone Presbyterian Church we would like for you to take time to read the following. A commitment/pledge is something between you and God. Each of us must remember the great gifts of time, talents and resources that we have receive and decide what we are called to dedicate to the Lord.
“Wealth and honor come from you; you are the ruler of all things. In your hands are strength and power to exalt and give strength and power to exalt and give strength to all. Now, our God, we give you thanks, and praise your glorious name. But who am I, who are my people, that we should be able to give as generously as this? Everything comes from you, and we have given you only what comes from your hand.” I Chronicles 29:12-14
One of the greatest Christian writers of our time, Philip Yancey, expresses the struggle we feel as we think on how we can ever give generously to our great God.
“I feel pulled in opposite directions over the money issue. Sometimes I want to sell all that I own, and join a Christian commune, and live out my days in intentional poverty. At other times, I want to rid myself of guilt and enjoy the fruits of our nation’s prosperity. Mostly, I wish I did not have to think about money at all.”
Yet, as faithful followers there is but one way to face our struggle with being generous to our great God, to pray. To pray for guidance and wisdom, so we might honor him through the 2017 commitments we pledge to give for the coming year.
