One of the real challenges of the Christian faith is to allow our love for the Lord to begin to change every area of our lives. This process of spiritual growth and change can be very exciting at first, but as it continues we may find that there are some areas of our lives that we do not want to change. Every believer eventually runs into this problem in one aspect of their Christian walk or another, but we have to continue to allow our love for God to shape and change us. Failing to grow spiritually causes stagnation and unhealthy habits. One area that many believers struggle to allow God work in is the area of giving. This sermon title is “Learning to Love,” from Mark 12: 41 – 44.
