Mr. Wesley famously urged the People Called Methodist to “make all you can, save all you can, and give all you can.” When Mr. Wesley spoke of making all you can, he meant for us to work hard; to not “trifle away our time” as he described it. When he spoke of saving all you can, he meant to limit our spending as much as possible; buy only what is necessary and when we buy, seek to buy the most practical of things. All of which was meant to be in the service of giving all that we can. Mr. Wesley wanted the People Called Methodist to be generous in the extreme so that our generosity might reflect the generosity of God. This week, as we draw our consideration of things financial to a close, we will talk about some of the principles that can govern our giving. I hope you will join us, either in person or virtually by Facebook or radio on 97.9 FM.
