Today I want to share a portion of a blog post by one of Elders, Charlie Blair. If you are interested in what Charlie has to say, I would encourage you to check out the rest of the story at his website, Lifengaged.com.
"I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will guide you with My eye." Ps 32:8
Tim (not his real name) had a serious need but I didn't know anything about it. But, God knew exactly what he needed. Out of the corner of my eye I began to notice him: he was in Starbucks but he seemed lost and out of place. He wasn't bothering anyone and he didn't look disheveled or unkempt or worn. It was one of those times when God tapped me on the shoulder and said, "Give him a $20 bill."
Has God ever done that to you? Tapped you on the shoulder and said "Give them a (you fill in the amount)?"
You may be balking at approaching a stranger, giving away money, or even at my claim that God tapped me on the shoulder and asked me to do something. The issue here, though, is generosity. If what you've read so far unsettles you a bit, read a bit farther.

Before you go...Let me remind you to be sensitive to the tapping of God's Holy Spirit. If He taps you He will also resource you.
