Keep on asking

Ron Haas - $10

Then Jesus went on to say:

Suppose one of you goes to a friend in the middle of the night and says, “Let me borrow three loaves of bread. A friend of mine has dropped in, and I don’t have a thing for him to eat.” And suppose your friend answers, “Don’t bother me! The door is bolted, and my children and I are in bed. I cannot get up to give you something.”

He may not get up and give you the bread, just because you are his friend. But he will get up and give you as much as you need, simply because you are not ashamed to keep on asking.

Luke 11:5-8 CEV

 

So listen: Keep on asking, and you will receive. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened for you. All who keep asking will receive, all who keep seeking will find, and doors will open to those who keep knocking.

Luke 11:9-10 VOICE

Ask for a Fish

Ron Haas - $15

“Give a man a fish; you have fed him for today. Teach a man to fish; and you have fed him for a lifetime.”

Fundraising is sometimes describes as “fishing” for donors, but the fishing metaphor is misleading. Real fishermen bait their fish into making bad decisions. Fundraisers might strategize about “fishing in the right ponds,” “choosing the right donor hook,” or “reeling in a huge catch.” They may even tell fish stories about “the big one” they landed, or even “the one that got away.”

 

But these images wrongly imply that fundraising means luring someone into doing something they will eventually regret. Instead of fishing, a better analogy for fundraising can be seen in Jesus’ lesson about prayer: “So I say to you: Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened. Which of you fathers, if your son asks for a fish, will give him a snake instead? Or if he asks for an egg, will give him a scorpion? If you then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!” Luke 11:9-13, NIV

Haggai & Friends

Patrick G. McLaughlin - $15

Stewardship is everything you do after you say, “I believe.”  So how do you then live your life of stewardship?  From beginning to end, the Bible provides a world class study about stewardship.  And surprisingly, it is the short and often overlooked Old Testament book of Haggai that is a centerpiece of the study.  This “minor” prophet addressed every segment of society and culture, challenging the Jewish population of 522BC Judah and Jerusalem to become obedient managers of God’s resources and tangible blessings.  Remarkably, the words, perspectives and principles apply just as well to those of us living in the 21st century western world.
