Arlene Sanchez, member of the NCF NM Board of Directors, was the featured speaker this month at The Navigators Faith@Work luncheon for business women. Topic: How to GIVE Like Jesus. Through the ups and downs of her own career she has learned what it means to give regardless of circumstances. Below are brief highlights from her presentation.
Five Principles of Giving
1. You were designed to give
2. Giving is a paradigm shift
3. Giving is not just about money
4. Having money vs. loving money
5. Stewardship vs. Ownership
You were designed to GIVE...you need the Holy Spirit to fight your sinful nature. Shift your paradigm...don't be enticed by the world, do your work for God and be humble in spirit. Giving is not about money. Focus on "you", take action, and expect nothing in return. Having vs. loving..use money to serve God, refrain from "loving" money. Stewardship vs. ownership...be a steward and remember it's all God's.
