Our weekly budget is $3,289. Last month’s average was $2,041. We are at 92% of budgeted giving for the year ($11,163 behind).

When we consecrate ourselves to God, we think we are making a great sacrifice, and doing lots for Him, when really we are only letting go some little bitsy trinkets we have been grabbing; and when our hands are empty, He fills them with His treasures.
