First things first...

PEARLS: 7/23/14

REAL: Take heed that you do not do your charitable deeds before men, to be seen by them. Otherwise you have no reward from your Father in heaven. Matt. 6:1

CULTURED: Some are more concerned that they be noticed than that Christ might be seen. Father Richard B. Bass

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

Stewardship Thought for the Week

Our Gospel is a reminder of how precious the priceless gift of the Kingdom of God is, and, that we have it! Our Epistle reminds us of the blessed assurance that goes with it! Finally, our Old Testament, reminds us that we, like Israel, are chosen to receive it. Thus with our treasure and gifts, and prompted by God's Spirit, we seek to help others find this priceless treasure God wants for them as well.
