The Wind Beneath the Wings

Mike and I just had the privilege of attending Stonebriar Community Church in Frisco, Texas, where Chuck Swindoll is the senior pastor.

Pastor Chuck taught extensively from Romans 12: 3 – 8 this past Sunday. When he dug into verses 6 – 8 about spiritual gifts, he said “the giver is the wind beneath the wings of the visionary.”

I especially liked that word picture of how important giving is and how the giver is a part of the ministry.

Do I know a ministry that speaks to my heart? Do I support that ministry in prayer and financially?

If the answer to either question is “no,” then I need to find a ministry that shares the same vision that I have for reaching people and I need to begin supporting it.

If the answer to both questions is “yes,” then I am sharing in that ministry’s impact on people’s lives.

What do you think?
