Why Bother?Blog / Produced by The High Calling
Why am I a pastor? I can’t make God heal people or fix their lives. I can’t make God speak to people or answer their questions. I can’t make God palatable to postmodern sensibilities. I can’t explain why people suffer. I have no special access to divine mysteries that are unavailable to others. That’s a lot of “I can’t’s” So why bother?
God has commisioned us to work and create, to develop the resources he has given us and share with those in need. But what does that look like practically? This topical nine-session Bible study contains tips and encouragement to live a life of generosity and fruitfulness, helping us to redeem our use of resources by nurturing biblical attitudes.
