“Actions always speak louder than words. There’s no getting around this truth: How you respond when you’ve been given a gift – and what you do with the gift itself – proves just how much you really appreciate it.
So have you gotten any gifts lately? Think about that question another way: Did you have any first-time guests at your church last week? How many have you had in the last month? The last year? Those guests were God’s gift to you. How did you receive them? Did you show the Giver your appreciation? Did you treat those gifts as they deserved to be treated by having a plan in place to integrate them into the life of your church? Or did you just say a quick thank-you and move on?” – Nelson Searcy
(the above quote is from p. 27 of Fusion by Nelson Searcy)
