Remember: A stingy planter gets a stingy crop; a lavish planter gets a lavish crop. I want each of you to take plenty of time to think it over, and make up your own mind what you will give. That will protect you against sob stories and arm-twisting. God loves it when the giver delights in the giving. 2 Corinthians 9:6-7
The process of recovery advocates strongly the goal is to help each other. Particularly for those who have been there to help those who are still there. God wants us to help with willing hearts. He is not only interested in what we do but in how we do it; our attitudes and motives. It is a gift to be able to share your story with others of God giving you a second, third, twenty-fifth chance.
