Years ago, a woman living on a farm in Germany brought to her minister about $10, which was a lot at the time.
She explained, “In former years, I have had to pay about this amount in medicine. This year there has been no sickness in our family. I want to show my gratitude to the Lord in this way.”
Some time later, she came with about $5, explaining that many of her neighbors had suffered losses in a recent windstorm, but that her farm had been spared. “I bring the church this donation as an offering of thanks.”
