The Lord Provides
October 26, 2007
Late last night I got a phone call from a church friend, who is the head of our church’s outreach committe, and is also involved in planning the retreat I talked about in my last post. She told me that, I was going to the retreat, and the money would be taken from our church’s outreach fund. I started to protest. In all honesty, I don’t tithe like I should, and I feel bad taking money from the church to go on a retreat. Espically since I’m treating myself to a pricey (by our standards anyway) birthday dinner this weekend. She cut me off, saying that I do ALOT for the church, and if I truly feel bad about it I could simply pay it forward when fortune smiles on me.
So, now I’m going. I’m happy, but feeling a tad guilty.
