Giving back to God through my church has been my practice, with varying degrees of enthusiasm, throughout my life. I have found the key to my enthusiasm lies right at my feet. If I make time to prioritize my relationship with God through prayer, reading of Scripture, and meditation, amazingly I also develop an attitude of gratitude. The result is that giving of my money, my time, and my talents becomes a natural response.
The Old Testament calls us to tithe, BUT, the New Testament calls us to be willing to give it all! Easter calls us to exuberant giving! As I sang in the choir on Easter, I was overwhelmed with the fact that my Savior lives and Highland Baptist Church continually seeks to live that out. My cup overflows! I am thankful for a church that calls me to give with a cheerful heart! Thanks be to God! ~ Linda Waller
