As we learn the seventh reason why God gave us money, Pastor Ford will help us understand that part of showing our thankfulness to God is through sharing what we have with others. He’ll point out that it’s the height of hypocrisy for congregations of believers to have any members who have needs that are not met. Believers should be taking care of one another and meeting the needs of their brothers and sisters who are in need.
Pastor James Ford Jr. has been the senior pastor of Christ Bible Church of Chicago, located on the south side of Chicago, Ill., for over 35 years. He also serves as the president of Impact Ministries, an outreach ministry committed to strengthening families in the South Shore community of Chicago.
