This story is awesome because it’s a story about an ordinary guy, who already had a cool job, being willing to set that aside or put it on the back burner and do something new that God called him to. This story was encouraging to me because it affirmed for me that God can use people with jobs and random interests in His kingdom. I loved how God provided for this man as he gave his money to God, spiritual “Money Laundering” as he called it. I loved seeing how God gave him solutions as he cried out to God in situations for which he didn’t have an action plan. God gives wisdom to those who ask Him for it (James 1:5).

A fun activity for this story would be to find a rescue mission or food bank in your area and bring them a donation of food or clothing. You can pick the items out together at home or at the store.
