Conflict doesn't have to be a bad thing. It's actually something that almost always catapults us forward.
Author Donald Miller says, “God’s more interested in the outcome of our story and he is interested in the conflict it takes to get there. God is more interested in you experiencing meaning that finding pleasure, so he doesn’t have a problem letting you go through conflict. If God were directing your story, he’d probably say two things: 1. Allow your character to be transformed 2. Make sure your story is about saving lives.”
I REALLY believe in child sponsorship through Compassion International. Kristine and I have sponsored two children. Brayan from El Salvador & Omar from Kenya. We write letters and they write back. Their teachers report their grades, their spiritual growth and progress in school. Here's the coolest thing- Compassion sent us a note that Brayan's family situation had improved so much that he & his siblings have graduated out of the program! His parents were able to start a bakery business and it's really taken off in El Salvador! I love seeing how our simple $38 a month gifts can bloom into something that can help break the cycle of poverty for an entire family!

I heard Charles Stanley say something this morning that really hit home with me. He said, "The tool Satan uses more than anything else today is that phrase: “This is a different age/culture is different now.” Anytime you hear someone say that, you better stop and see what God’s Word says about it. God's Word trumps culture."
"I the LORD do not change. So you, O descendants of Jacob, are not destroyed."
- Malachi 3:6
"Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows."
- James 1:17
God’s really worked on my heart over the last few years and challenged my wife and I to shift the way we look at generosity. Many of us have looked at a poverty mindset on one end of the spectrum and a prosperity mindset on the other end when it comes to money. That's because the Bible cautions us not to let money control is, but it also talks about how giving and living generously do bring blessing into our life. I think we get a little out of balance because we let the greedy people of the world taint our view of giving. I want you to know, my heart isn’t really focused on either mindset in that pendulum. It's not a poverty mindset OR a prosperity mindset. My family is seeking a Biblical mindset. If Gods word speaks clearly about something I want to own that.
