A Lack of Faith
By: Rick Boxx
February 19, 2013
Former author and teacher, Larry Burkett, wrote about a friend that asked him to intervene in a situation with this man’s church. In a building campaign, the church had decided to borrow a significant amount of money.
Larry’s friend was willing to fund the entire project if the pastor was willing to walk in faith. Larry met with the pastor hoping to convince him to trust God for the funding rather than the bank.
The pastor doubted God would provide and refused. Disappointed in his pastor, Larry’s friend, left the church and gave his large donation elsewhere.
Hebrews 11:1 teaches, “Now faith is being sure of what we hope forand certain of what we do not see.”
In your workplace, do you only make decisions based on what you see?
