“One Simple Act” by Debbie Macomber [ISBN#9781439108932]
I just finished this barely 200-page book. It took me almost two weeks. Usually I could have finished it in about four hours. I put it down several times and tried to ignore it or convince myself it wasn’t for me. But I knew it was. And so today I read until I finished it. I cried. I felt frustration. And then I finally got the message that was intended for me.
There are five things I know for sure. Those are:
~ Giving not only changes the recipient, it changes us.
~ Giving aligns us with the very heartbeat of God.
~ The Bible says that we can take it with us. [refer to Matthew 6:19-21]
~ We are called to give – cheerfully and joyfully.
~ Giving is an act of worship. One Simple Act, Debbie Macomber, p. 203
If you think that list is something you already know and have already mastered or if you disagree with the list, then you need to read the book, like me.
