You Gave Me Cash?

Yesterday morning my church gave me cash. To be exact, they gave me $30 as a reminder that I “didn’t just go to church. I am the church sent on a mission.” Sure I was a part of the decision-making process to give money back into the hands of the people, but I’m just like everyone else left trying to figure out wha5437288053_624c075aa3_bt I’m going to do with this trust. During worship we talked about using the money for some act of compassion or some attempt at righting some form of injustice. But it’s only $30! As fun as it is to experience my church entrusting money into my hands for sake of God’s purposes, it’s also perplexing. What am I going to do with this money!? Will I just check this little investment off my list as quickly and painlessly as I can, or will I put some thought and prayer into how I will use it to bless someone? Will I look at this money as such a little amount that it will barely make any difference, or will I look at it as a 5 loaves and 2 fish kind of thing where God can amaze me in how he will use this paltry $30 along with my heart and my hands to make a big difference for someone.

I guess we’ll find out. My family is going to pray about it and see where God points us to use this money that’s been entrusted to us.
