STEWARDSHIP

GRACE IS FREE

Grace is free, but the church needs help. There is a story about a young lad bouncing
through the front door carrying a large candy bar. Quite curious, his mother asked,
“Where did you get that?” “I bought it with the money you gave me,” the boy replied.
“Why didn’t you give it to the church?” she asked. “I was going to but the minister met
me at the door and didn’t ask for money; I got in for free.”

We all like to go places and experience happy times for free. When we go to worship
we never buy a ticket, never bargain to serve in lieu of money and never are compelled
to put money in the offering plate. Basically, we can get in and out of a church without
any cost at all if we wish.

More than that, it is likely that while worshipping we will come to understand that
God’s grace is also free. After all, God is our parent and provides for our needs with
unlimited love and it is freely given. God alone does not need our money, just our
hearts. Still, God’s house and God’s work, which we are to do on earth, do require gifts
and services. A church must have people who volunteer to help pay the bills of the
church. A church always needs more givers than takers.

A church must have workers to serve in countless ways. A church must provide for
missionaries, services to the needy, support for the sick and elderly, a place for children
of whatever age. We must be “workers together with God” or we are not really the
church.
