Imagine your most precious possession – a piece of jewelry, a memento, a memory – or even a special person. Something or someone you don’t feel you could live without. And this special possession has been the object of your heart affection all of your life. It has become the enjoyment, the comfort, the exhilaration of your soul.
And now you are required to let it go. You willingly allow it to be taken from your hands – the object of your affection has now become the gnawing pain of loss.
This is what it meant for the Father to give up His Son to be rejected, mocked, and crucified. There is simply no greater gift that has ever been given. God is not only the Giver of Life – He is the Giver of His Son to die for your sins and mine.
Whenever Burnadette and I give our dollars to causes we believe in here or around the world, we are comforted in the fact that whatever we share in our giving reflects our true gratefulness that God has given everything for us. Everything.
This is the motivation of a spiritual giver – “how can giving my resources to causes bigger than myself help my heart to connect with the One Who has given everything to me?”
Thanks for your cheerful, measured gifts to Pulse 101.7. And thanks be to God for His indescribable Gift!

“Through Him then, let us continually offer up a sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of lips that give thanks to His name. And do not neglect doing good and sharing, for with such sacrifices God is pleased.” – Hebrews 13.15,16
