Oh why do I live this way?

Compliments of Kathryn by way of an old friend...

"It is good to work and have. It is better to work and have in order to give away. God's glory shines more brightly when He satisfies us in time of loss than when He provides for us in times of plenty. The health, wealth, and prosperity "gospel" swallows up the beauty of his gifts and turns the gifts into idols. The world is not impressed when Christians get rich and say thanks to God. They are impressed when God is so satisfying that we give our riches away for Christ sake and COUNT IT GAIN." john piper
