The Lincoln Challenge
So when the service was closing, Pastor Dwayne gave us a challenge. He said the elders of the church have prayed and prayed about this and they really feel led to do it. So they took a couple hundred five dollar bills from our missions fund and passed the offering plates around so each person could get one. "The Lincoln Challenge" is to find some creative way to invest that money in the next month and bring it back on July 10th with the original five dollars and the profit you made from it and give it back to the missions fund. He challenged each one of us to really be asking the Lord what he wants us to do with it to invest it and follow what he says. So I'm going to be praying :) He also encouraged us to share our ideas with one another, so if you do have any ideas of how to invest it, you can leave me a comment :)
This is not only supposed to be done for this one month with this one five dollar bill, it's supposed to teach us how to do it with one hundred dollars, and one thousand dollars. After all, all money is the Lord's. Why shouldn't we do our best to honor him with it?
