Our pastor has set a goal for our church to become debt free in the near future. I am all for being debt free. The goal is to be met in the near future. This will cause many of us to sacrifice greatly. I believe in sacrifice. The mentality behind this idea of sacrificing is we all may not be able to give the same amount, but we all should make the same sacrifice. I agree. The pastor is really driving the point home about giving towards this goal. I am all for meeting the goal. In the area of sacrifice, I believe that some already sacrifice as much if not more than those who have "things". Should they give even more sacrificially to meet the demands of equal sacrifice? It seems the spiritual needs of the church are being overlooked in his effort to meet this goal. About 75% of his sermons are on giving lately, the other 15% are on the Gospel alone and 10% on the spiritual aspect of being a christian. Thoughts?
