Q: Aside from giving some money to a few men with “need work” signs, I’ve not had many 10 second rule impressions. Is that normal?  Todd

A: Well, I’m not sure what “normal” is. However, most of my impressions have to do with encouraging people and warnings from the Holy Spirit about saying or doing something I know is unkind or worse.

I have worried that because the first two stories I told in chapter one of my book were about giving people money, that readers would look first for generosity opportunities. I believe we gravitate to generosity because it usually makes us and others feel better. Saying “no” to sin rarely does in the short run. Personally, I’ve found that self-denial or “sin management” is tougher than doing good for others.
