How Much Do You Make?

I was recently asked by a person bragging about how much money they make, “So, what do you make?” This was asked in a rather demeaning manner, knowing that I live on offerings.
I thought about it for a moment and answered . .
I make people think about their lives.
I make others aware of God’s love for them.
I make the way to the Father clear, understandable and beautiful.
I make people aware of the fact that God has a purpose for them.
I make husbands and wives understand the value of their relationship.
I make others realize the value of being!
I make the truth of God’s Word plain so others can find their way to heaven thru Christ.
I make people see the wonder of creation.
I make people THINK!
I make the answers to the mysteries of every human issue open and plain.

Then, when people judge me by what I “make,” with me knowing that money and personal possessions certainly aren’t everything, I can look up to God with thanksgiving that He has called me to a much higher purpose, and that they are simply ignorant, shallow and poor.

You want to know what I make? Thanks to God I make a difference!

So, tell me again . . . what is it you make?
