Across the Preacher’s Desk: An Offering or Collection?

September 14, 2023 - As the story goes, the family had come home from church and little Bobby followed his mother into the kitchen. She took the fried chicken out of the oven she had cooked before church and put it on a platter. She left to go into the other room and when she came back Bobby had a drumstick and thigh on a plate and was headed out the door. When questioned, he pleaded with his mother that he wanted the drumstick and thigh to feed his dog. Mother informed him in a not so gentle manner that the fried chicken was for the family dinner.

However, our impatience betrays a lack of faith in God. The farmer has more faith when he plants his see, trusting God will send rain and give the crop.
