Cool scentman! that's awesome! I listen to Christian radio too and I really like Dr. Randy Carlson. If you all can listen to him, it's well worth your time. His BIG plateform is being INTENTIONAL. He says it constantly, but he's right!
He has a philosophy of 10-10-80. Save 10% of your income. Tithe 10% of your income. Live on the remaining 80%. Now, I have to admit, right now, this is ONLY a good idea to me. My wife and I would like to reach this point someday. Right now, we're tithing more like 5% and giving our time the other 5%!
...I am not skilled to understand, what God has willed, what God has planned, I only know at His right hand, stands One who is my Savior....
