you give life to us all,

our Tithes and Offerings
By the grace of God we are what we are, and his grace toward us
has not been in vain. Listen afresh to the calling of Simon
Peter and his companions:
Now, compare the offering you are about to give to that catch of
fish. You played a part in tossing out your nets, so to speak,
to earn your living, a portion of which you will soon place in
the plates. But where did it all come from, and what are you
doing with the rest of the catch? Is it somehow connected with
God’s larger calling of being “fishers of people”? Think about
that and offer up your own prayer of thanksgiving as the ushers
toss their nets – I mean, pass the plates.

should let him tell the story. His talk is entitled “You’ve got
to be kidding!,” or “how numbers can be deceiving.” … Brother
“Peace be to you, don’t be afraid, you shall not die.” That
was the benediction of God to Gideon on that day long ago. Of

day, nor on the day when he was called to put aside his fears and
face the Midianites. As you head into this week, no doubt full of
other kinds of Midianites, may the blessing of God’s Shalom, his
peace blow away your fear. And do not forget the first words God
spoke to Gideon, for the echo through our day as well – “The Lord
is with you…”
