Learning and Growing

We were at a larger church a while ago for a mission conference.  We barely got a chance to present.  Finally, after a week of being there, we left and received a love offering check.  It was very small and didn’t even cover the cost of our gas one way, much less the return trip or the few meals that weren’t provided.  We were very blessed by the trip, the preaching and the people we met.  However, I still had problems with bitterness about the size of the check.

Deputation isn’t about money, even tho it is.  As I said, we were very blessed by the trip, the preaching and the people we met.  But it still was difficult to get past.  So I tried praying that God would bless and grow the church every time I had a bitter thought.  Oddly enough, God blessed me over and over as I tried to move past.  There might be a valuable lesson here…
