On this “giving Tuesday, ” I am thinking about fishing. I remember fishing as a child. There were places we would go that seemed loaded with perch or bull-heads. Those were fun trips. Then, there were days when nothing seemed to bite. Looking back I realized it wasn’t about the fish biting or not, it was about the relationship and time spent with my family and friends. It’s like that when it comes to funding this ministry. The money is important BUT the real treasure is in the relationships forged between the people at camp and the one with Christ. While admittedly it’s more exciting to be making the catch, I will never sacrifice the presence of the relationships built.
It is important to finance the ministry so we can continue to help others build relationships face to face. We also build relationships with Christ so we can grow in our faith.
