compassion

why do we decide to give or not give to those in need?

the naked pastor has some thoughts. Very interesting stuff and a good video.

here are his questions, but go read the post for the setup and payoff.

That, for me, is the crucial and burning issue as a pastor of a community of people with money. How do we give? What motivates us to give? What inspires us to be generous? What are the underlying issues we have with money that we aren’t free to give it away without some kind of poignant provocation? These are the questions that provoke me.

hat tip to Vision Navigator who adds some thoughts of his own about what motivates giving.
