This morning at church I got to share about why we give our money to God.

My key point was that small matches light big fires, that our contribution can be used in incredible ways, to change lives and help people.

When I was checking Facebook at home I came across this post that demonstrates this perfectly.


It is about a waitress who pays for the meal of two firefighters,  who had spent a long shift attending a fire.   She wrote a note on their receipt,  thanking them for their courage and sacrifice.   They were so touched that they shared it on Facebook and encouraged people to, go to where she worked and to tip big.  But wait, there is more.  They then found out she had a fundraising page to raise money for a special wheelchair for her dad, and shared that too.  Before you could say ” small matches light big fires” over $70,000 had been raised!
