God is there… and he should be there. He brings us comfort when He’s close.
But the reason we put Him there should be the right reason. There are two reasons He lines the pockets.
Reason One: We live our day-in, day-out lives taking God out from hiding only when we need Him. Like a quarter for the parking meter. Put in a little because we need a little time. We need to not worry. We need that comfort of knowing “Oh just a little bit of God and I’ll be fine.”
We keep Him in close proximity. Close enough to be heard when we have a request. JUST close enough.
Reason Two: Here’s the best.
God’s holding the resources. If God’s holding that quarter… well, it can do things you never dreamed of doing… change lives. God can bless that pocket right out of this world! Then the comfort level sky rockets. Because everything is His to begin with. How much more comfort can we have than knowing God’s got our needs ALREADY handled. Let’s just be His.
What if God wasn’t just a “go to” in times of need? What if we gave out of our hearts… out of our pockets.
We could change the world one quarter at a time.
