One morning when I was driving to work I was thinking about what my Pastor had said on Sunday morning about how our church only had 7% of it’s 21,000 members who tithe. I then had an idea given to me by the Holy Spirit. I thought what a cool idea it was and went on. I later thought about it again and said, “Monica, don’t be lazy just get it done.” As the video editor at the Rock Church I have been given a platform, which is to create videos for the weekend. My boss has given me creative licenses to create and has allowed me to take ownership. I had no reason what so ever to not do this project that God had put in my heart to do. I then asked around and found some stories to share. I wanted to create real stories that were honest and stories that people who had never gave to a church could relate to. It’s more than just giving 10% but it’s being a part of something larger, a movement that helps and changes lives.
I’ve been hearing great feed back from people, and I know that many where encouraged by them. The power of not being lazy, the power of taking ownership of your job aka “platform” is amazing, and what it difference it makes.
