What does it take to refuel the resources needed to do ministry in the local church?  The reality is it takes money.  One once said, “God doesn’t need our money to do ministry.”  That statement in a certain context can certainly be true. However, through God’s people’s giving, the work of the church thrives because those who claim themselves to be believers and followers of Jesus accept the responsibility to willingly participate in God’s plan.  Perhaps there is something more to refueling besides monies for God’s work to be done?  Believe it or not, we as disciples become refueled when we learn to give joyfully.
