I just got off the phone with a woman who gave a generous gift to Keys for Kids Ministries. It didn’t match her other giving, so I called her to ask why. She’s a single mom. She never wanted divorce, but the abuse was non-stop. She had dedicated her life to full-time service—but now she felt ostracized. Never having two nickels to rub together, she says God blessed and she gave. While she’s always prayed for God to fix things and to care for her kids, she realized He WAS—providing for their needs and allowing her to minister through her many part-time jobs and now her giving. It’s only a matter of time until we face a crisis. Will we give thanks in ALL things—like this lady—or question God? What example will WE be to our kids?
