How to give in a way that God gets credit

Kevin spoke yesterday at Westwind. It was an awesome morning. Here's a link to listen to the sermon. He gets a little zany making the crowd blare trumpets and fake applause for giving a $1 to charity. If you would like that to make sense...listen in.

I got a lot out of it. One thing was that it reminded me of the fact that giving in the way Christ teaches, reserved the receiver's dignity. Interesting because it came up in one of the interviews we listened to in the Haiti footage. A Pastor commented that the Church in Haiti was able to give and retain the people's dignity unlike the aid organizations that were abundant after the earthquake. It was especially poignant to me because I lost a bit of dignity recently in terms of a gift.
