A little girl wanted to make an offering at church, and her dad reached into his pocket to make it possible.
Everything that we have comes to us from our loving and generous God, just as that little girl’s offering came from her loving and generous dad. Everything.
When we give to Women of the ELCA, when we make a contribution to Katie’s Fund, when we make a designated gift through Women of the ELCA to ELCA World Hunger, we are simply using what God has given us to support God’s work in the world.
That little girl gave eagerly and gave joyfully. Can you imagine how she felt as she ran to support God’s work with all she had? Can you imagine how she thanked her dad?
Can you imagine doing the same?
