What If ...

What if we cared more than we consumed?
What if we share more than we spent?
What if we stimulated grace instead of the economy?

In the next few weeks just about every American is going to have him or herself a question, What do I do with the free money I am being sent from the government? I heard some people on NPR answering that question today. Some said they would save it, pay on their credit card bills with it, or buy a new car with it. Not one said they were going to give it away.

Let's change the culture. Those of us who are followers of Jesus strive to regard others more highly than ourselves. We try to put the values of Christ's kingdom ahead of the values of the American empire. Right here and right now we have a fresh and unique opportunity to put this into action.

As for me and my house, we're going to do it. We are going to give a part of our economic stimulus package check to the Grace Stimulus Package effort at Vintage Fellowship. This money is going to be used to help meet needs and make grace happen in people's lives across Northwest Arkansas.

What are you going to do with the money?
