The ManCode Minute | 009 - Go, Grow, and Give   printer  

But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To Him be the glory both now and forever.
2 Peter 3:18 NKJV
 
Far too many folks go to church for the wrong reasons: to get something from other members or to put an imaginary checkmark on some self-imposed cosmic to-do list or to fulfill some family tradition or simply out of habit. But none of these reasons is good enough. Why, then, should you get yourself out of bed (or off the golf course) to worship God in His church? It’s simple: You should go to church to grow and to give.
 
Why do you go to church? How much are you contributing to your church? Are you growing and giving?
 
“We become whatever we are committed to.”
Rick Warren
 
“The wonderful thing about God’s schoolroom is that we get to grade our own papers. You see, He doesn’t test us so He can learn how well we’re doing. He tests us so we can discover how well we’re doing.”
