A Lifestyle Of Giving

Diverse Hands Holding The Word Give

“Whatever a man sows, that he will also reap.” Galatians 6:7 When I read that scripture, I get very excited about giving. I mean uncontainable excitement and guess what, I am not even thinking about financial giving. It seems sometimes we get stuck there—believing the only way we can give is with money. This means if we don’t have any money, we may feel

An Audience of One

Throne

What audience do you play to? Each day, you are seen by many who will make a judgment about the way you handle yourself among different audiences. Politicians have learned to play to their audiences, customizing messages for the needs of their particular groups. Musicians have learned to play to their audiences.
