We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give. ~ Winston Churchill
Sunday after Sunday, I sit in the front and watch the offering plates passed back and forth across the aisles. People accept the plate if they have something to put in or if someone else in the row has something to give. Many of us today do not bring regular Sunday offerings. We give by checks mailed periodically, we tive by a regular debit to our account, or we give by transfer of stock We give our offerings in a very different way today than we did a couple of years ago when I was a child. So, why do we pass the offering plate?
