  • - THE FIRST THING THAT WE NEED TO DO,
  • 00:00:09.020 --> 00:00:10.290
  • WE HAD THIS CAR THAT WAS TOO BIG FOR US,
  • 00:00:11.020 --> 00:00:12.290
  • THE PAYMENT WAS TOO BIG, AND SO WE SOLD THAT CAR
  • 00:00:13.020 --> 00:00:15.280
  • AND WE BOUGHT A CAR FOR CASH, $750.
  • 00:00:16.010 --> 00:00:20.140
  • THAT WAS ALL WE COULD AFFORD.
  • 00:00:20.170 --> 00:00:22.140
  • WE LOVED THAT CAR. WE PRAYED OVER IT.
  • 00:00:22.170 --> 00:00:24.240
  • WE ANOINTED IT WITH OIL, ABOUT A QUART A WEEK.
  • 00:00:24.270 --> 00:00:27.040

  • 00:00:55.050 --> 00:00:56.140
  • ABOUT PASTOR ROBERT MORRIS'S
  • 00:00:58.000 --> 00:00:59.220
  • LATEST TEACHING.
  • 00:00:59.220 --> 00:01:01.110
  • HIS BOOK IS CALLED
  • 00:01:01.110 --> 00:01:02.190
  • BEYOND BLESSED .
  • 00:01:02.190 --> 00:01:04.020
  • I HAVE TO TELL YOU HONESTLY,
  • 00:01:04.020 --> 00:01:05.290
  • I WISH I'D READ THIS BOOK
  • 00:01:05.290 --> 00:01:07.150
  • WHEN I WAS 18;
  • 00:01:07.150 --> 00:01:09.010
  • I WISH I HAD READ THIS BOOK
  • 00:01:09.010 --> 00:01:10.220
  • WHEN I WAS 30.
  • 00:01:10.220 --> 00:01:12.080
  • SOMETIMES WHEN WE TALK ABOUT
  • 00:01:12.080 --> 00:01:14.050
  • MONEY AND FINANCES,
  • 00:01:14.050 --> 00:01:16.100
  • PARTICULARLY ON TELEVISION,
  • 00:01:16.100 --> 00:01:17.280
  • I KNOW THAT SOMETIMES
  • 00:01:17.280 --> 00:01:19.280
  • WE BECOME A LITTLE SUSPICIOUS
  • 00:01:19.280 --> 00:01:21.150
  • AND WE FLIP THROUGH
  • 00:01:21.150 --> 00:01:22.280
  • THE CHANNELS
  • 00:01:22.280 --> 00:01:24.100
  • BUT I GUESS WHAT I'VE BEGUN
  • 00:01:24.100 --> 00:01:25.260
  • TO SEE WITH PASTOR ROBERT'S
  • 00:01:25.260 --> 00:01:27.190
  • UNIQUE MINISTRY
  • 00:01:27.190 --> 00:01:29.050
  • AND UNDERSTANDING
  • 00:01:29.050 --> 00:01:30.190
  • OF THESE SPIRITUAL PRINCIPLES
  • 00:01:30.190 --> 00:01:32.090
  • IS IT IS NOT ABOUT OBLIGATION,
  • 00:01:32.180 --> 00:01:35.180
  • IT IS ALL ABOUT FREEDOM.
  • 00:01:35.180 --> 00:01:37.070
  • GOD WANTS US TO BE FREE.
  • 00:01:37.070 --> 00:01:39.190
  • I REMEMBER WHEN
  • 00:01:39.190 --> 00:01:41.110
  • I WAS 19 YEARS OLD
  • 00:01:41.110 --> 00:01:42.220
  • AND I WAS IN SEMINARY
  • 00:01:42.220 --> 00:01:44.030
  • I WANTED TO GO WITH THE YOUTH
  • 00:01:44.030 --> 00:01:45.180
  • WITH A MISSION TEAM
  • 00:01:45.180 --> 00:01:47.030
  • UP TO THE OLYMPIC GAMES THAT
  • 00:01:47.030 --> 00:01:48.180
  • WERE BEING HELD IN CANADA.
  • 00:01:48.180 --> 00:01:50.010
  • MY FRIEND AND I WANTED TO GO
  • 00:01:50.010 --> 00:01:51.110
  • AND WE HAD VERY LITTLE MONEY.
  • 00:01:51.110 --> 00:01:52.270
  • BUT I WORKED OUT
  • 00:01:52.270 --> 00:01:54.080
  • THAT I COULD FLY TO NEW YORK
  • 00:01:54.080 --> 00:01:55.190
  • AND THEN WE COULD GET
  • 00:01:55.190 --> 00:01:57.000
  • A GREYHOUND BUS
  • 00:01:57.000 --> 00:01:58.230
  • FROM NEW YORK TO MONTREAL.
  • 00:01:58.230 --> 00:02:00.190
  • SO WE DID THAT AND IT WAS
  • 00:02:00.190 --> 00:02:02.000
  • A FANTASTIC OUTREACH.
  • 00:02:02.000 --> 00:02:03.100
  • WE SAW HUNDREDS AND HUNDREDS
  • 00:02:03.100 --> 00:02:04.260
  • OF PEOPLE COME TO CHRIST.
  • 00:02:04.260 --> 00:02:06.090
  • BUT I REALIZED, FOR
  • 00:02:06.090 --> 00:02:07.200
  • COMING HOME I DIDN'T HAVE --
  • 00:02:07.200 --> 00:02:09.000
  • I HAD MY PLANE TICKETED
  • 00:02:09.000 --> 00:02:10.100
  • FROM NEW YORK
  • 00:02:10.100 --> 00:02:11.240
  • BUT I DIDN'T HAVE
  • 00:02:11.240 --> 00:02:13.060
  • THE WHOLE OF THE BUS TICKET;
  • 00:02:13.060 --> 00:02:14.160
  • IT WAS $60 TO GO
  • 00:02:14.160 --> 00:02:15.270
  • FROM MONTREAL TO NEW YORK.
  • 00:02:15.270 --> 00:02:17.100
  • BUT ON THE LAST DAY WE HAD
  • 00:02:17.100 --> 00:02:18.200
  • THIS BEAUTIFUL BIG SERVICE
  • 00:02:18.200 --> 00:02:20.090
  • ON ALL OF THE TEAMS
  • 00:02:20.090 --> 00:02:21.210
  • FROM AROUND THE WORLD
  • 00:02:21.210 --> 00:02:23.030
  • AND WHOEVER WAS LEADING
  • 00:02:23.030 --> 00:02:24.130
  • THE SERVICE THAT DAY SAID,
  • 00:02:24.130 --> 00:02:25.230
  • "THERE ARE SOME
  • 00:02:25.230 --> 00:02:27.040
  • FINANCIAL NEEDS AMONG US
  • 00:02:27.040 --> 00:02:28.150
  • AND GOD IS GOING
  • 00:02:28.150 --> 00:02:29.240
  • TO MEET THOSE NEEDS."
  • 00:02:29.240 --> 00:02:31.070
  • I THOUGHT, THIS IS FANTASTIC.
  • 00:02:31.070 --> 00:02:32.150
  • I KNEW IT WAS FOR ME.
  • 00:02:32.150 --> 00:02:33.270
  • SO I'M SITTING THERE
  • 00:02:35.070 --> 00:02:36.150
  • AND WE'RE ALL PRAYING
  • 00:02:36.150 --> 00:02:37.270
  • AND I WAS WAITING
  • 00:02:37.270 --> 00:02:39.120
  • FOR WHOEVER WAS GOING TO
  • 00:02:39.120 --> 00:02:40.230
  • SUDDENLY COME UP TO ME
  • 00:02:40.230 --> 00:02:42.040
  • INSTEAD OF THAT,
  • 00:02:43.160 --> 00:02:44.290
  • I HEARD THE LORD SAY,
  • 00:02:44.290 --> 00:02:46.140
  • "I WANT YOU TO GIVE THAT $40
  • 00:02:46.140 --> 00:02:48.070
  • TO THAT GUY OVER THERE."
  • 00:02:48.070 --> 00:02:49.120
  • I SAID, "LORD,
  • 00:02:49.120 --> 00:02:50.170
  • I CAN'T DO THAT.
  • 00:02:50.170 --> 00:02:51.220
  • THEN I CAN'T GO HOME."
  • 00:02:51.220 --> 00:02:53.100
  • BUT IT WAS SO COMPELLING.
  • 00:02:53.100 --> 00:02:54.280
  • SO I GOT UP, GAVE THE $40
  • 00:02:54.280 --> 00:02:57.090
  • AND EXPECTED
  • 00:02:57.090 --> 00:02:58.190
  • IN THE NEXT MINUTE OR SO
  • 00:02:58.190 --> 00:03:00.050
  • SOMEONE WOULD IMMEDIATELY
  • 00:03:00.050 --> 00:03:01.190
  • COME TO ME AND HAND ME
  • 00:03:01.190 --> 00:03:03.010
  • EVERYTHING I NEEDED
  • 00:03:03.010 --> 00:03:04.140
  • AND IT DIDN'T HAPPEN.
  • 00:03:04.140 --> 00:03:05.240
  • AND EVERYTHING FINISHED,
  • 00:03:05.240 --> 00:03:07.060
  • CLOSED DOWN,
  • 00:03:07.060 --> 00:03:08.180
  • AND I'M PACKING MY BAG
  • 00:03:08.180 --> 00:03:09.280
  • THINKING, LORD,
  • 00:03:09.280 --> 00:03:11.070
  • WHAT DO I DO NOW?
  • 00:03:11.070 --> 00:03:12.200
  • DO I HITCHHIKE TO NEW YORK?
  • 00:03:12.200 --> 00:03:14.020
  • WHEN I WAS CALLED BACK
  • 00:03:14.020 --> 00:03:15.070
  • BY ONE OF THE STAFF
  • 00:03:15.070 --> 00:03:16.160
  • AND SHE SAID, "OH, BY THE WAY,
  • 00:03:16.160 --> 00:03:17.240
  • YOU OVERPAID."
  • 00:03:17.240 --> 00:03:19.090
  • AND GAVE ME A GIFT OF $60.
  • 00:03:19.090 --> 00:03:20.210
  • WELL, STORIES LIKE THAT
  • 00:03:20.210 --> 00:03:22.000
  • ARE NOT JUST A RANDOM STORY
  • 00:03:22.000 --> 00:03:23.090
  • FOR PASTOR MORRIS,
  • 00:03:23.090 --> 00:03:24.180
  • THEY ARE A LIFESTYLE.
  • 00:03:24.180 --> 00:03:26.260
  • SO I WANT YOU TO WATCH
  • 00:03:26.260 --> 00:03:28.100
  • THIS TEACHING
  • 00:03:28.100 --> 00:03:29.190
  • AND I REALLY PRAY
  • 00:03:29.190 --> 00:03:30.260
  • IT IMPACTS YOU
  • 00:03:30.260 --> 00:03:32.040
  • AS MUCH AS IT DID ME.
  • 00:03:32.040 --> 00:03:33.120
  • Robert: SO LET ME TELL YOU
  • 00:03:36.120 --> 00:03:37.220
  • HOW THIS WORKED OUT
  • 00:03:37.220 --> 00:03:38.290
  • IN MY OWN LIFE
  • 00:03:38.290 --> 00:03:40.060
  • AND IN DEBBIE'S LIFE.
  • 00:03:40.060 --> 00:03:41.090
  • I GOT SAVED
  • 00:03:41.090 --> 00:03:42.150
  • NINE MONTHS AFTER
  • 00:03:42.150 --> 00:03:43.220
  • DEBBIE AND I WERE MARRIED.
  • 00:03:43.220 --> 00:03:45.150
  • A FEW MONTHS LATER,
  • 00:03:45.150 --> 00:03:47.020
  • I HEARD MY FIRST MESSAGE
  • 00:03:47.020 --> 00:03:48.070
  • ON TITHING
  • 00:03:48.070 --> 00:03:49.090
  • AND IMMEDIATELY WE TITHED
  • 00:03:49.090 --> 00:03:50.170
  • AND GOD BEGAN TO BLESS US.
  • 00:03:50.170 --> 00:03:52.120
  • I WENT TO BIBLE COLLEGE
  • 00:03:52.120 --> 00:03:53.210
  • AND THEN I WAS
  • 00:03:53.210 --> 00:03:55.110
  • A TRAVELING EVANGELIST.
  • 00:03:55.110 --> 00:03:56.250
  • SO I DID NOT WORK
  • 00:03:56.250 --> 00:03:58.000
  • I DIDN'T RECEIVE ANY SALARY
  • 00:03:59.050 --> 00:04:00.140
  • FROM A CHURCH.
  • 00:04:00.140 --> 00:04:01.160
  • AT THAT TIME I ONLY RECEIVED
  • 00:04:01.160 --> 00:04:03.280
  • OFFERINGS OR HONORARIUMS
  • 00:04:03.280 --> 00:04:05.090
  • I'M DOING THAT FOR A LIVING
  • 00:04:07.040 --> 00:04:09.110
  • AND THE LORD SPOKE TO ME
  • 00:04:09.110 --> 00:04:12.010
  • ONE DAY IN MY QUIET TIME
  • 00:04:12.010 --> 00:04:13.040
  • AND HE SAID, "I WANT YOU
  • 00:04:13.040 --> 00:04:14.080
  • TO GET YOUR FINANCES IN ORDER
  • 00:04:14.080 --> 00:04:15.230
  • SO I CAN BLESS THEM."
  • 00:04:15.230 --> 00:04:17.250
  • I WANT YOU TO THINK
  • 00:04:17.250 --> 00:04:19.070
  • ABOUT THAT; THAT'S A VERY
  • 00:04:19.070 --> 00:04:20.200
  • IMPORTANT IMPRESSION
  • 00:04:20.200 --> 00:04:22.010
  • THAT I RECEIVED FROM THE LORD.
  • 00:04:22.010 --> 00:04:23.140
  • "I WANT YOU TO GET
  • 00:04:23.140 --> 00:04:24.240
  • YOUR FINANCES IN ORDER
  • 00:04:24.240 --> 00:04:25.290
  • SO I CAN BLESS THEM."
  • 00:04:25.290 --> 00:04:27.070
  • GOD CANNOT BLESS THINGS
  • 00:04:27.070 --> 00:04:28.170
  • OUT OF ORDER.
  • 00:04:28.170 --> 00:04:29.220
  • WE HAVE
  • 00:04:29.220 --> 00:04:30.240
  • A STEWARDSHIP DEPARTMENT
  • 00:04:30.240 --> 00:04:31.290
  • THAT CAN HELP YOU GET
  • 00:04:31.290 --> 00:04:33.070
  • YOUR FINANCES IN ORDER.
  • 00:04:33.070 --> 00:04:34.110
  • SO I SAID, "LORD,
  • 00:04:34.110 --> 00:04:35.110
  • WHAT DO YOU WANT ME TO DO?"
  • 00:04:35.110 --> 00:04:36.140
  • BACK THEN
  • 00:04:36.140 --> 00:04:37.170
  • I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT TO DO.
  • 00:04:37.170 --> 00:04:38.180
  • I'M GOING TO TELL YOU
  • 00:04:39.210 --> 00:04:40.200
  • THE THREE THINGS HE TOLD ME.
  • 00:04:40.200 --> 00:04:41.200
  • HE SAID, "NUMBER ONE:
  • 00:04:41.200 --> 00:04:42.220
  • GET OUT OF DEBT."
  • 00:04:42.220 --> 00:04:43.230
  • TO DIFFERENT PEOPLE.
  • 00:04:45.000 --> 00:04:46.040
  • DIFFERENT PEOPLE
  • 00:04:46.040 --> 00:04:47.070
  • HAVE DIFFERENT CONVICTIONS.
  • 00:04:47.070 --> 00:04:48.090
  • FOR US,
  • 00:04:48.090 --> 00:04:49.150
  • WE COULD STILL HAVE A MORTGAGE
  • 00:04:49.150 --> 00:04:50.250
  • BUT WE WERE NOT TO BORROW
  • 00:04:50.250 --> 00:04:52.050
  • FOR DEPRECIATING ITEMS,
  • 00:04:52.050 --> 00:04:53.190
  • ONLY APPRECIATING ITEMS
  • 00:04:53.190 --> 00:04:55.020
  • LIKE A MORTGAGE ON A HOME.
  • 00:04:55.020 --> 00:04:56.090
  • SO WE HAVE A MORTGAGE
  • 00:04:56.090 --> 00:04:57.160
  • TO THIS DAY
  • 00:04:57.160 --> 00:04:58.180
  • AND WE HAVE HAD A MORTGAGE
  • 00:04:58.180 --> 00:04:59.260
  • BUT WE PUT IT
  • 00:04:59.260 --> 00:05:01.010
  • ON A 15-YEAR NOTE
  • 00:05:01.010 --> 00:05:02.040
  • AND WE DO OUR BEST
  • 00:05:02.040 --> 00:05:03.090
  • TO PAY IT OFF.
  • 00:05:03.090 --> 00:05:04.190
  • SO I JUST WANT YOU TO KNOW
  • 00:05:04.190 --> 00:05:05.240
  • BECAUSE WHEN I SAY THAT,
  • 00:05:05.240 --> 00:05:06.270
  • I DON'T WANT YOU TO --
  • 00:05:06.270 --> 00:05:08.090
  • I WANT YOU TO LET THE LORD
  • 00:05:08.090 --> 00:05:09.180
  • APPLY IT TO YOU
  • 00:05:09.180 --> 00:05:10.240
  • HOW HE APPLIES IT TO YOU.
  • 00:05:10.240 --> 00:05:12.060
  • NUMBER ONE HE SAID,
  • 00:05:12.060 --> 00:05:13.190
  • "GET OUT OF DEBT."
  • 00:05:13.190 --> 00:05:14.260
  • SO FOR US, THE FIRST THING
  • 00:05:14.260 --> 00:05:16.030
  • WE NEEDED TO DO,
  • 00:05:16.030 --> 00:05:17.080
  • WE HAD THIS CAR
  • 00:05:17.080 --> 00:05:18.170
  • THAT WAS TOO BIG FOR US,
  • 00:05:18.170 --> 00:05:19.220
  • THE PAYMENT WAS TOO BIG
  • 00:05:19.220 --> 00:05:20.290
  • AND SO WE SOLD THAT CAR
  • 00:05:20.290 --> 00:05:22.030
  • AND WE BOUGHT A CAR
  • 00:05:22.030 --> 00:05:23.090
  • FOR CASH, $750.
  • 00:05:23.090 --> 00:05:26.090
  • THAT'S ALL WE COULD AFFORD.
  • 00:05:26.090 --> 00:05:27.250
  • SO WE BOUGHT A CAR FOR $750.
  • 00:05:27.250 --> 00:05:30.080
  • BUT YOU'VE GOT TO HEAR ME.
  • 00:05:30.080 --> 00:05:31.230
  • WE ACTUALLY LOVED THAT CAR.
  • 00:05:31.230 --> 00:05:34.000
  • I MEAN WE LOVED IT
  • 00:05:34.000 --> 00:05:35.090
  • BECAUSE WE WERE GETTING
  • 00:05:35.090 --> 00:05:36.210
  • OUR FINANCES IN ORDER.
  • 00:05:36.210 --> 00:05:37.230
  • WE LOVED THAT CAR.
  • 00:05:37.230 --> 00:05:38.290
  • WE PRAYED OVER IT.
  • 00:05:38.290 --> 00:05:40.060
  • WE ANOINTED IT WITH OIL,
  • 00:05:40.060 --> 00:05:41.130
  • ABOUT A QUART A WEEK.
  • 00:05:41.130 --> 00:05:42.250
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:05:42.250 --> 00:05:45.200
  • AND WE DROVE THAT CAR.
  • 00:05:45.200 --> 00:05:47.020
  • THE LORD SAID TO ME WAS:
  • 00:05:48.130 --> 00:05:49.200
  • "DON'T MANIPULATE."
  • 00:05:49.200 --> 00:05:52.020
  • BUT A WHOLE BUNCH OF PEOPLE
  • 00:05:53.070 --> 00:05:54.100
  • MANIPULATE FOR MONEY.
  • 00:05:54.100 --> 00:05:55.280
  • GOD NEVER BLESSES
  • 00:05:55.280 --> 00:05:57.080
  • MANIPULATION.
  • 00:05:57.080 --> 00:05:58.140
  • MANIPULATION
  • 00:05:58.140 --> 00:05:59.200
  • COMES FROM A ROOT WORD
  • 00:05:59.200 --> 00:06:00.270
  • THAT MEANS WITCHCRAFT.
  • 00:06:00.270 --> 00:06:03.050
  • SO YOU CANNOT MANIPULATE.
  • 00:06:03.050 --> 00:06:04.150
  • YOU CAN'T DROP HINTS
  • 00:06:04.150 --> 00:06:06.170
  • AND EXPECT GOD
  • 00:06:06.170 --> 00:06:07.270
  • TO PROVIDE FOR YOU.
  • 00:06:07.270 --> 00:06:09.020
  • SO FOR ME, I SAID, "WELL,
  • 00:06:09.020 --> 00:06:10.030
  • LORD, HOW DOES THAT WORK OUT?"
  • 00:06:10.030 --> 00:06:11.080
  • HE SAID, "WELL, WHEN SOMEONE
  • 00:06:11.080 --> 00:06:12.150
  • ASKS YOU TO COME SPEAK,
  • 00:06:12.150 --> 00:06:13.210
  • THEY SAY, 'WHAT ARE
  • 00:06:13.210 --> 00:06:14.290
  • YOUR FINANCIAL REQUIREMENT
  • 00:06:14.290 --> 00:06:16.070
  • FOR COMING?'
  • 00:06:16.070 --> 00:06:17.140
  • AND YOU SAY, 'PAY OUR EXPENSES
  • 00:06:17.140 --> 00:06:18.240
  • AND GIVE US AN OFFERING.'"
  • 00:06:18.240 --> 00:06:19.290
  • SOME OF MY FRIENDS WOULD
  • 00:06:19.290 --> 00:06:21.070
  • ACTUALLY SAY, "PAY OUR
  • 00:06:21.070 --> 00:06:22.160
  • EXPENSES, GIVE US AN OFFERING
  • 00:06:22.160 --> 00:06:23.220
  • AND THE OFFERING HAS TO BE
  • 00:06:23.220 --> 00:06:25.010
  • A MINIMUM OF..."
  • 00:06:25.010 --> 00:06:26.070
  • I NEVER EVEN SAID THAT.
  • 00:06:26.070 --> 00:06:27.130
  • I JUST SAID WHATEVER,
  • 00:06:27.130 --> 00:06:28.140
  • JUST PAY US OUR EXPENSES
  • 00:06:28.140 --> 00:06:29.170
  • AND GIVE US AN OFFERING.
  • 00:06:29.170 --> 00:06:30.210
  • HERE'S WHAT
  • 00:06:30.210 --> 00:06:31.280
  • THE LORD SAID TO ME.
  • 00:06:31.280 --> 00:06:33.020
  • "FROM NOW ON YOU SAY, 'I HAVE
  • 00:06:33.020 --> 00:06:34.070
  • NO FINANCIAL REQUIREMENTS
  • 00:06:34.070 --> 00:06:35.100
  • FOR COMING.'"
  • 00:06:35.100 --> 00:06:36.130
  • THIS WAS ABOUT 30 YEARS AGO
  • 00:06:36.130 --> 00:06:37.130
  • AND I STILL DO THAT
  • 00:06:37.130 --> 00:06:38.190
  • TO THIS DAY,
  • 00:06:38.190 --> 00:06:39.230
  • "I HAVE NO FINANCIAL
  • 00:06:39.230 --> 00:06:40.290
  • REQUIREMENTS COMING."
  • 00:06:40.290 --> 00:06:42.050
  • AND THE LORD SAID TO ME,
  • 00:06:42.050 --> 00:06:43.130
  • I WANT TO TEACH YOU
  • 00:06:43.130 --> 00:06:44.230
  • WHO YOUR PROVIDER IS;
  • 00:06:44.230 --> 00:06:47.050
  • THAT IS NOT HOW
  • 00:06:47.050 --> 00:06:48.130
  • YOU ARRANGE THINGS, IT'S ME.
  • 00:06:48.130 --> 00:06:50.120
  • NOW AGAIN, OTHER PEOPLE,
  • 00:06:50.120 --> 00:06:51.190
  • YOU CAN DO THINGS DIFFERENTLY.
  • 00:06:51.190 --> 00:06:52.230
  • DON'T PUT THIS ON YOU,
  • 00:06:52.230 --> 00:06:54.030
  • LET THE LORD SPEAK TO YOU
  • 00:06:54.030 --> 00:06:55.100
  • WHAT HE WANTS YOU TO DO.
  • 00:06:55.100 --> 00:06:56.140
  • SO THIS GUY CALLS ME,
  • 00:06:56.140 --> 00:06:57.190
  • I WILL NEVER FORGET.
  • 00:06:57.190 --> 00:06:58.220
  • THE FIRST GUY CALLS
  • 00:06:58.220 --> 00:06:59.260
  • AND SAYS, "ROBERT,
  • 00:06:59.260 --> 00:07:01.020
  • CAN YOU COME AND SPEAK?"
  • 00:07:01.020 --> 00:07:02.040
  • I SAID, "YES."
  • 00:07:02.040 --> 00:07:03.070
  • WE WORKED OUT A DATE.
  • 00:07:03.070 --> 00:07:04.090
  • HE SAID, "WHAT ARE
  • 00:07:04.090 --> 00:07:05.110
  • YOUR FINANCIAL REQUIREMENTS
  • 00:07:05.110 --> 00:07:06.140
  • FOR COMING?"
  • 00:07:06.140 --> 00:07:07.170
  • I SAID, "I HAVE
  • 00:07:07.170 --> 00:07:08.210
  • NO FINANCIAL REQUIREMENTS
  • 00:07:08.210 --> 00:07:09.230
  • FOR COMING."
  • 00:07:09.230 --> 00:07:10.260
  • AND I REMEMBER HE SAID,
  • 00:07:10.260 --> 00:07:12.020
  • "WELL, THAT'S GOOD
  • 00:07:12.020 --> 00:07:13.070
  • BECAUSE I DON'T EVEN THINK
  • 00:07:13.070 --> 00:07:14.140
  • WE CAN PAY YOUR GAS."
  • 00:07:14.140 --> 00:07:15.170
  • NOW HE DIDN'T SAY
  • 00:07:15.170 --> 00:07:16.200
  • "PAY YOUR EXPENSES,"
  • 00:07:16.200 --> 00:07:17.200
  • HE SAID, "PAY YOUR GAS."
  • 00:07:17.200 --> 00:07:18.200
  • LET ME TELL YOU
  • 00:07:18.200 --> 00:07:19.230
  • WHY THAT'S IMPORTANT.
  • 00:07:19.230 --> 00:07:20.290
  • WE GET IN THAT $750-CAR,
  • 00:07:20.290 --> 00:07:22.010
  • WE START DRIVING,
  • 00:07:22.010 --> 00:07:23.060
  • IT WAS TO OKLAHOMA,
  • 00:07:23.060 --> 00:07:24.110
  • WE START DRIVING TO OKLAHOMA.
  • 00:07:24.110 --> 00:07:25.150
  • I STOP TO FILL THE CAR UP
  • 00:07:25.150 --> 00:07:26.200
  • WITH GAS.
  • 00:07:26.200 --> 00:07:27.260
  • I WENT IN TO PAY FOR IT
  • 00:07:27.260 --> 00:07:28.280
  • AND THE LADY SAID TO ME,
  • 00:07:28.280 --> 00:07:30.020
  • "IT'S TAKEN CARE OF."
  • 00:07:30.020 --> 00:07:31.060
  • I SAID, "WHAT DO YOU MEAN
  • 00:07:31.060 --> 00:07:32.110
  • IT'S TAKEN CARE OF?"
  • 00:07:32.110 --> 00:07:33.130
  • SHE SAID, "BECAUSE WHEN
  • 00:07:33.130 --> 00:07:34.160
  • YOU PULLED IN, GOD TOLD ME
  • 00:07:34.160 --> 00:07:35.190
  • I WAS TO FILL YOUR CAR UP
  • 00:07:35.190 --> 00:07:36.220
  • WITH GAS."
  • 00:07:36.220 --> 00:07:37.220
  • I WENT OUT
  • 00:07:37.220 --> 00:07:38.220
  • AND I GOT IN THE CAR
  • 00:07:38.220 --> 00:07:39.230
  • AND I SAID, "LORD,
  • 00:07:39.230 --> 00:07:40.250
  • I SURE LIKE DOING IT BETTER
  • 00:07:40.250 --> 00:07:42.020
  • YOUR WAY THAN MY WAY."
  • 00:07:42.020 --> 00:07:43.060
  • AND HERE'S THE THIRD THING
  • 00:07:44.110 --> 00:07:45.130
  • THE LORD SAID TO ME, "GIVE."
  • 00:07:45.130 --> 00:07:46.210
  • SO HE SAID, "GET OUT OF DEBT,
  • 00:07:46.210 --> 00:07:48.190
  • DON'T MANIPULATE, AND GIVE."
  • 00:07:48.190 --> 00:07:51.030
  • WHAT HAPPENED.
  • 00:07:52.100 --> 00:07:53.140
  • I SAID TO THE LORD,
  • 00:07:53.140 --> 00:07:54.150
  • NOW PLEASE
  • 00:07:58.120 --> 00:07:59.180
  • DON'T GET OFFENDED BY THIS.
  • 00:07:59.180 --> 00:08:00.230
  • THIS IS JUST THE IMPRESSION
  • 00:08:00.230 --> 00:08:01.290
  • I GOT IN MY SPIRIT
  • 00:08:01.290 --> 00:08:03.200
  • WHEN I SAID THAT.
  • 00:08:03.200 --> 00:08:04.230
  • I TITHE."
  • 00:08:06.020 --> 00:08:07.030
  • I FELT LIKE THE LORD WENT
  • 00:08:07.030 --> 00:08:08.060
  • HA HA HA HA.
  • 00:08:08.060 --> 00:08:11.030
  • I MEAN THAT REALLY...
  • 00:08:11.030 --> 00:08:12.080
  • I KIND OF FELT LIKE IT WAS
  • 00:08:12.080 --> 00:08:13.130
  • KIND OF LIKE,
  • 00:08:13.130 --> 00:08:14.170
  • HA HA HA HA, IDIOT!
  • 00:08:14.170 --> 00:08:15.230
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:08:15.230 --> 00:08:16.270
  • THAT'S HOW I FELT.
  • 00:08:16.270 --> 00:08:18.010
  • WHAT DO YOU MEAN, LORD?
  • 00:08:18.010 --> 00:08:19.010
  • I DO. I GIVE 10%.
  • 00:08:19.010 --> 00:08:20.030
  • HE SAID, "YOU DON'T GIVE 10%
  • 00:08:20.030 --> 00:08:21.050
  • YOU RETURN 10%."
  • 00:08:21.050 --> 00:08:24.000
  • HE SAID, "THE 10% IS MINE."
  • 00:08:24.000 --> 00:08:26.160
  • AND WHEN YOU READ
  • 00:08:26.160 --> 00:08:27.210
  • THE LANGUAGE IN THE BIBLE,
  • 00:08:27.210 --> 00:08:28.270
  • IF YOU DON'T RETURN IT
  • 00:08:28.270 --> 00:08:30.060
  • THEN YOU'VE STOLEN IT.
  • 00:08:30.060 --> 00:08:31.290
  • THAT'S THE LANGUAGE.
  • 00:08:31.290 --> 00:08:33.050
  • I CAN SHOW IT TO YOU
  • 00:08:33.050 --> 00:08:34.110
  • IN JOSHUA AND IN MALACHI,
  • 00:08:34.220 --> 00:08:37.220
  • "ROBBED" AND "STOLEN,"
  • 00:08:37.220 --> 00:08:39.100
  • THOSE ARE THE TWO WORDS
  • 00:08:39.100 --> 00:08:40.240
  • GOD USES.
  • 00:08:40.240 --> 00:08:41.290
  • HE USED THAT.
  • 00:08:41.290 --> 00:08:43.040
  • SO I SAID, "LORD,
  • 00:08:43.040 --> 00:08:44.060
  • WHAT DO YOU MEAN GIVE?"
  • 00:08:44.060 --> 00:08:45.080
  • HE SAID, "I MEAN GIVE
  • 00:08:45.080 --> 00:08:46.090
  • OVER AND ABOVE THE TITHE.
  • 00:08:46.090 --> 00:08:47.130
  • THAT'S WHEN YOU GIVE."
  • 00:08:47.130 --> 00:08:48.150
  • I ASKED HIM THREE
  • 00:08:48.150 --> 00:08:49.200
  • VERY IMPORTANT QUESTIONS.
  • 00:08:49.200 --> 00:08:50.240
  • I SAID, "WELL, LORD,
  • 00:08:50.240 --> 00:08:52.020
  • HOW WILL I KNOW WHEN TO GIVE?
  • 00:08:52.020 --> 00:08:53.090
  • HOW WILL I KNOW WHERE TO GIVE?
  • 00:08:53.090 --> 00:08:54.120
  • AND HOW WILL I KNOW
  • 00:08:54.120 --> 00:08:55.170
  • HOW MUCH TO GIVE?"
  • 00:08:55.170 --> 00:08:56.220
  • AREN'T THOSE
  • 00:08:56.220 --> 00:08:57.240
  • IMPORTANT QUESTIONS?
  • 00:08:57.240 --> 00:08:58.250
  • LISTEN TO HIS
  • 00:08:58.250 --> 00:08:59.290
  • VERY SIMPLE ANSWER.
  • 00:08:59.290 --> 00:09:01.060
  • HERE'S WHAT HE SAID:
  • 00:09:01.060 --> 00:09:02.080
  • "I'LL TELL YOU.
  • 00:09:02.080 --> 00:09:04.030
  • I'LL TELL YOU.
  • 00:09:04.030 --> 00:09:05.270
  • MY PEOPLE HEAR MY VOICE.
  • 00:09:05.270 --> 00:09:08.120
  • MY SHEEP HEAR MY VOICE."
  • 00:09:08.120 --> 00:09:10.190
  • AND SO I SAID, "OKAY, LORD."
  • 00:09:10.190 --> 00:09:12.000
  • SO NOT LONG AFTER THAT
  • 00:09:12.000 --> 00:09:13.180
  • I GO TO SPEAK AT A CHURCH.
  • 00:09:13.180 --> 00:09:14.250
  • NOW YOU HAVE TO REMEMBER
  • 00:09:14.250 --> 00:09:16.010
  • THE ONLY SALARY
  • 00:09:16.010 --> 00:09:17.030
  • THAT DEBBIE AND I RECEIVED
  • 00:09:17.030 --> 00:09:18.050
  • WAS WHEN I WOULD GO AND SPEAK
  • 00:09:18.050 --> 00:09:19.070
  • IN A CHURCH AND IF THEY
  • 00:09:19.070 --> 00:09:20.110
  • COULD GIVE US AN OFFERING.
  • 00:09:20.110 --> 00:09:21.170
  • I SAID, "YOU DON'T HAVE
  • 00:09:21.170 --> 00:09:22.200
  • TO GIVE US ANYTHING."
  • 00:09:22.200 --> 00:09:23.220
  • SO I GO TO SPEAK
  • 00:09:23.220 --> 00:09:25.000
  • FOR THIS CHURCH, IT IS
  • 00:09:25.000 --> 00:09:26.050
  • THE ONLY SPEAKING ENGAGEMENT
  • 00:09:26.050 --> 00:09:27.100
  • I HAVE FOR THE WHOLE MONTH.
  • 00:09:27.100 --> 00:09:28.140
  • I ONLY HAVE ONE ENGAGEMENT
  • 00:09:28.140 --> 00:09:29.220
  • FOR THAT WHOLE MONTH,
  • 00:09:29.220 --> 00:09:31.190
  • AND IT IS AT A CHURCH
  • 00:09:31.190 --> 00:09:32.230
  • WITH ABOUT 60 PEOPLE
  • 00:09:32.230 --> 00:09:33.270
  • IN ATTENDANCE.
  • 00:09:33.270 --> 00:09:35.040
  • I GO AND I SPEAK
  • 00:09:35.040 --> 00:09:36.110
  • AT THAT CHURCH AND I SAID,
  • 00:09:36.110 --> 00:09:38.150
  • "I HAVE NO REQUIREMENTS
  • 00:09:38.150 --> 00:09:39.200
  • FOR COMING."
  • 00:09:39.200 --> 00:09:40.240
  • THE PASTOR GETS UP AFTERWARDS.
  • 00:09:40.240 --> 00:09:41.280
  • HE TELLS
  • 00:09:41.280 --> 00:09:42.290
  • THE WHOLE CHURCH THAT.
  • 00:09:42.290 --> 00:09:44.020
  • HE SAID, "HE HAS NO FINANCIAL
  • 00:09:44.020 --> 00:09:45.050
  • REQUIREMENTS FOR COMING.
  • 00:09:45.050 --> 00:09:46.090
  • I WANT US TO GIVE AN OFFERING
  • 00:09:46.090 --> 00:09:47.110
  • AND I WANT US TO GIVE
  • 00:09:47.110 --> 00:09:48.130
  • A GOOD OFFERING."
  • 00:09:48.130 --> 00:09:49.130
  • SO THEY COUNT IT
  • 00:09:49.130 --> 00:09:50.140
  • AND THEN THEY BRING A CHECK
  • 00:09:50.140 --> 00:09:51.150
  • TO THE PASTOR.
  • 00:09:51.150 --> 00:09:52.150
  • WE'RE STANDING RIGHT HERE
  • 00:09:52.150 --> 00:09:53.170
  • AT THE FRONT AND THE PASTOR
  • 00:09:53.170 --> 00:09:54.180
  • BRINGS ME THIS CHECK AND SAYS,
  • 00:09:54.180 --> 00:09:55.190
  • "LOOK AT THIS! LOOK AT THIS!
  • 00:09:55.190 --> 00:09:56.190
  • WE'VE NEVER GIVEN THIS MUCH."
  • 00:09:56.190 --> 00:09:57.200
  • HE WAS SO EXCITED
  • 00:09:57.200 --> 00:09:58.220
  • TO BE ABLE TO DO THAT.
  • 00:09:58.220 --> 00:09:59.250
  • I LOOKED DOWN AT THE AMOUNT
  • 00:09:59.250 --> 00:10:01.070
  • AND THE AMOUNT WAS THE EXACT
  • 00:10:01.070 --> 00:10:03.040
  • AMOUNT OF OUR MONTHLY BUDGET
  • 00:10:03.040 --> 00:10:05.010
  • -- EXACTLY -- AND IT HAD
  • 00:10:05.010 --> 00:10:06.100
  • DOLLARS AND CENTS ON IT.
  • 00:10:06.100 --> 00:10:07.180
  • AND YOU HAVE TO REMEMBER,
  • 00:10:07.180 --> 00:10:08.240
  • AT THAT TIME,
  • 00:10:08.240 --> 00:10:09.290
  • WE ALSO HAD AN OFFICE
  • 00:10:09.290 --> 00:10:11.030
  • AND WE HAD AN EMPLOYEE,
  • 00:10:11.030 --> 00:10:12.120
  • A PERSON THAT HELPED ME
  • 00:10:12.120 --> 00:10:13.220
  • TO SET UP MEETINGS BECAUSE
  • 00:10:13.220 --> 00:10:14.280
  • SOME OF THE MEETINGS I DID
  • 00:10:14.280 --> 00:10:16.070
  • WERE LARGE MEETINGS
  • 00:10:16.070 --> 00:10:17.110
  • AND WE'RE GATHERING CHURCHES
  • 00:10:17.110 --> 00:10:18.180
  • TOGETHER AND THINGS LIKE THAT.
  • 00:10:18.180 --> 00:10:19.250
  • SO I LOOKED DOWN
  • 00:10:19.250 --> 00:10:21.000
  • AND I REMEMBER THINKING,
  • 00:10:21.000 --> 00:10:22.080
  • THIS IS MY ONLY MEETING
  • 00:10:22.080 --> 00:10:23.140
  • FOR THE WHOLE MONTH,
  • 00:10:23.140 --> 00:10:24.170
  • YOU TOLD ME
  • 00:10:24.170 --> 00:10:25.210
  • NOT TO ASK FOR ANYTHING
  • 00:10:25.210 --> 00:10:26.240
  • AND GOD YOU ARE SO FAITHFUL.
  • 00:10:26.240 --> 00:10:27.280
  • AND WHILE I'M LOOKING
  • 00:10:27.280 --> 00:10:29.210
  • AT THAT CHECK AND THINKING
  • 00:10:29.210 --> 00:10:31.050
  • HOW FAITHFUL GOD IS
  • 00:10:31.050 --> 00:10:32.100
  • I KIND OF GLANCE UP
  • 00:10:32.100 --> 00:10:33.130
  • AND I LOOK OVER THE SHOULDER
  • 00:10:33.130 --> 00:10:34.240
  • OF THIS PASTOR
  • 00:10:34.240 --> 00:10:36.000
  • THAT IS TALKING TO ME
  • 00:10:36.000 --> 00:10:37.080
  • AND I SEE AT THE BACK
  • 00:10:37.080 --> 00:10:38.110
  • OF THE CHURCH A MISSIONARY
  • 00:10:38.110 --> 00:10:39.190
  • THAT HAD JUST SPOKEN
  • 00:10:39.190 --> 00:10:41.010
  • RIGHT BEFORE I SPOKE,
  • 00:10:41.010 --> 00:10:42.040
  • SHARED A REPORT
  • 00:10:42.040 --> 00:10:43.140
  • AND THIS VOICE SAID TO ME,
  • 00:10:43.140 --> 00:10:44.270
  • "GIVE HIM THE OFFERING."
  • 00:10:44.270 --> 00:10:47.130
  • I REMEMBER EXACTLY
  • 00:10:47.130 --> 00:10:48.220
  • WHAT I THOUGHT.
  • 00:10:48.220 --> 00:10:49.270
  • I REBUKE YOU, SATAN.
  • 00:10:49.270 --> 00:10:51.030
  • THAT'S NOT GOD!
  • 00:10:51.030 --> 00:10:52.110
  • THAT'S NOT GOD!
  • 00:10:52.110 --> 00:10:53.230
  • GET BEHIND ME, SATAN!
  • 00:10:53.230 --> 00:10:54.280
  • GET BEHIND ME, SATAN!
  • 00:10:54.280 --> 00:10:56.080
  • THAT IS NOT GOD!
  • 00:10:56.080 --> 00:10:58.000
  • I REMEMBER, IT'S FUNNY I KNOW,
  • 00:10:58.000 --> 00:10:59.270
  • BUT I REMEMBER EVEN SAYING,
  • 00:10:59.270 --> 00:11:01.080
  • "THAT'S NOT YOU!
  • 00:11:01.080 --> 00:11:02.150
  • THAT'S NOT YOU. I KNOW YOU.
  • 00:11:02.150 --> 00:11:04.230
  • YOU WOULD NOT DO THAT, GOD."
  • 00:11:04.230 --> 00:11:06.200
  • AND THE LORD SAID,
  • 00:11:06.200 --> 00:11:07.290
  • "GIVE HIM THE OFFERING.
  • 00:11:07.290 --> 00:11:09.120
  • THE WHOLE OFFERING,
  • 00:11:09.120 --> 00:11:10.170
  • GIVE HIM THE OFFERING."
  • 00:11:10.170 --> 00:11:11.270
  • I REMEMBER SAYING TO THE LORD,
  • 00:11:11.270 --> 00:11:13.140
  • AGAIN YOU JUST HAVE TO KNOW
  • 00:11:13.140 --> 00:11:14.230
  • THAT I TALK TO THE LORD FUNNY
  • 00:11:14.230 --> 00:11:15.280
  • AND HE TALKS TO ME FUNNY.
  • 00:11:15.280 --> 00:11:17.010
  • I REMEMBER SAYING
  • 00:11:17.010 --> 00:11:18.050
  • TO THE LORD, "LORD,
  • 00:11:18.050 --> 00:11:19.130
  • YOU'RE NOT THINKING CLEARLY!"
  • 00:11:19.130 --> 00:11:20.290
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:11:20.290 --> 00:11:22.100
  • "THIS IS THE EXACT AMOUNT
  • 00:11:22.100 --> 00:11:23.150
  • OF OUR BUDGET.
  • 00:11:23.150 --> 00:11:24.210
  • WE HAVE NO OTHER MEETINGS
  • 00:11:24.210 --> 00:11:25.220
  • THIS MONTH.
  • 00:11:25.220 --> 00:11:26.270
  • I PREACHED A GOOD MESSAGE
  • 00:11:26.270 --> 00:11:28.020
  • AND YOU GOT ALL PUMPED UP
  • 00:11:28.020 --> 00:11:29.070
  • AND YOU WANT TO GIVE
  • 00:11:29.070 --> 00:11:30.120
  • TO A MISSIONARY NOW, LORD,
  • 00:11:30.120 --> 00:11:31.170
  • BUT YOU PROVIDED THIS FOR US."
  • 00:11:31.170 --> 00:11:32.230
  • THE LORD SAID,
  • 00:11:32.230 --> 00:11:33.280
  • "GIVE HIM THE OFFERING.
  • 00:11:33.280 --> 00:11:35.050
  • GIVE HIM THE OFFERING."
  • 00:11:35.050 --> 00:11:36.180
  • THEN I REMEMBER
  • 00:11:36.180 --> 00:11:37.260
  • THE LORD SAYING TO ME,
  • 00:11:37.260 --> 00:11:39.040
  • "I TOLD YOU
  • 00:11:39.040 --> 00:11:40.130
  • THAT I WOULD TELL YOU WHEN
  • 00:11:40.130 --> 00:11:41.220
  • TO GIVE AND WHERE TO GIVE
  • 00:11:41.220 --> 00:11:42.290
  • AND HOW MUCH TO GIVE.
  • 00:11:42.290 --> 00:11:44.060
  • I'M TELLING YOU TO GIVE
  • 00:11:44.060 --> 00:11:45.140
  • RIGHT NOW TO THAT MISSIONARY
  • 00:11:45.140 --> 00:11:46.240
  • THE WHOLE AMOUNT."
  • 00:11:46.240 --> 00:11:48.090
  • AND SO THE SANCTUARY
  • 00:11:48.090 --> 00:11:50.090
  • WAS CLEARING OUT BY NOW
  • 00:11:50.090 --> 00:11:51.240
  • AND I ENDORSED THE CHECK
  • 00:11:51.240 --> 00:11:53.060
  • WHEN NO ONE WAS LOOKING,
  • 00:11:53.060 --> 00:11:54.190
  • FOLDED IT IN HALF
  • 00:11:54.190 --> 00:11:55.280
  • AND I WENT TO THE MISSIONARY.
  • 00:11:55.280 --> 00:11:57.050
  • AND I SAID, "I'M GOING
  • 00:11:57.050 --> 00:11:58.110
  • TO GIVE YOU SOMETHING
  • 00:11:58.110 --> 00:11:59.180
  • BUT DON'T LOOK AT IT
  • 00:11:59.180 --> 00:12:00.280
  • UNTIL AFTER YOU LEAVE,"
  • 00:12:00.280 --> 00:12:02.060
  • BECAUSE IT WAS
  • 00:12:02.060 --> 00:12:03.150
  • A VERY LARGE AMOUNT.
  • 00:12:03.150 --> 00:12:04.230
  • TELL ANYONE I DID THIS."
  • 00:12:06.040 --> 00:12:07.160
  • BECAUSE I DIDN'T WANT
  • 00:12:07.160 --> 00:12:09.000
  • TO MANIPULATE IN ANY WAY.
  • 00:12:09.000 --> 00:12:10.180
  • I HAVE, I BELIEVE NOW
  • 00:12:10.180 --> 00:12:12.120
  • THESE TESTIMONIES
  • 00:12:13.180 --> 00:12:14.240
  • TO HELP OTHER PEOPLE
  • 00:12:14.240 --> 00:12:15.290
  • BUT BACK THEN I DIDN'T SHARE
  • 00:12:15.290 --> 00:12:17.060
  • ANY OF THESE THINGS
  • 00:12:17.060 --> 00:12:18.090
  • THAT I WAS DOING.
  • 00:12:18.090 --> 00:12:19.140
  • SO I GAVE HIM THIS OFFERING
  • 00:12:19.140 --> 00:12:20.200
  • AND HE SAID, "THANK YOU."
  • 00:12:20.200 --> 00:12:22.070
  • AND THEN DEBBIE
  • 00:12:22.070 --> 00:12:23.170
  • AND I WALKED OUTSIDE
  • 00:12:23.170 --> 00:12:24.220
  • AND THERE WERE SOME COUPLES
  • 00:12:24.220 --> 00:12:26.030
  • STANDING IN THE PARKING LOT.
  • 00:12:26.030 --> 00:12:27.080
  • AND ONE OF THE COUPLES SAID,
  • 00:12:27.080 --> 00:12:28.130
  • "HEY, WE'RE GOING TO GO
  • 00:12:28.130 --> 00:12:29.190
  • GET SOME PIZZA.
  • 00:12:29.190 --> 00:12:30.240
  • DO Y'ALL WANT TO GO?"
  • 00:12:30.240 --> 00:12:31.280
  • WE SAID, "YEAH!"
  • 00:12:31.280 --> 00:12:33.010
  • BECAUSE WE WERE BROKE.
  • 00:12:33.010 --> 00:12:34.030
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:12:34.030 --> 00:12:35.030
  • "YEAH, SURE!
  • 00:12:35.030 --> 00:12:36.070
  • WE LOVE GOING TO GET PIZZA."
  • 00:12:36.070 --> 00:12:37.080
  • SO WE GO EAT PIZZA WITH THEM
  • 00:12:37.080 --> 00:12:38.140
  • AND THERE ARE
  • 00:12:38.140 --> 00:12:39.200
  • SIX COUPLES TOTAL.
  • 00:12:39.200 --> 00:12:40.290
  • SO DEBBIE AND I AND
  • 00:12:40.290 --> 00:12:42.050
  • FIVE OTHER COUPLES.
  • 00:12:42.050 --> 00:12:43.130
  • THE SIXTH GUY SAT,
  • 00:12:43.130 --> 00:12:44.260
  • IF YOU SEE THIS IN YOUR MIND,
  • 00:12:44.260 --> 00:12:46.010
  • SAT AT ONE END OF THE TABLE,
  • 00:12:46.010 --> 00:12:47.100
  • THE SIXTH GIRL SAT
  • 00:12:47.100 --> 00:12:48.190
  • AT THE OTHER END OF THE TABLE.
  • 00:12:48.190 --> 00:12:49.230
  • DEBBIE IS ALL THE WAY
  • 00:12:49.230 --> 00:12:51.020
  • AT THE END ON THAT END,
  • 00:12:51.020 --> 00:12:52.150
  • I'M AT THIS END.
  • 00:12:52.150 --> 00:12:53.270
  • THESE FOUR GUYS STARTED
  • 00:12:53.270 --> 00:12:55.070
  • TALKING ABOUT SOMETHING,
  • 00:12:55.070 --> 00:12:56.120
  • THEY GOT IN SOME CONVERSATION
  • 00:12:56.120 --> 00:12:57.180
  • ABOUT FOOTBALL OR SOMETHING.
  • 00:12:57.180 --> 00:12:59.020
  • AND THEN THIS GUY
  • 00:12:59.020 --> 00:13:00.250
  • ACROSS FROM ME THAT
  • 00:13:00.250 --> 00:13:02.110
  • I HAD MET ONE TIME BEFORE,
  • 00:13:02.110 --> 00:13:04.080
  • JUST ONCE,
  • 00:13:04.080 --> 00:13:05.130
  • I MET HIM JUST ONE TIME,
  • 00:13:05.130 --> 00:13:06.170
  • HE LEANS ACROSS THE TABLE
  • 00:13:06.170 --> 00:13:07.250
  • LIKE THIS,
  • 00:13:07.250 --> 00:13:09.010
  • KIND OF LEANED ACROSS.
  • 00:13:09.010 --> 00:13:11.120
  • I DON'T KNOW WHAT
  • 00:13:11.120 --> 00:13:12.180
  • HE IS GOING TO SAY.
  • 00:13:12.180 --> 00:13:13.270
  • HE SAID TO ME, "HOW MUCH
  • 00:13:13.270 --> 00:13:15.050
  • WAS THE LOVE OFFERING?"
  • 00:13:15.050 --> 00:13:16.090
  • JUST LIKE THAT.
  • 00:13:16.090 --> 00:13:17.140
  • AGAIN,
  • 00:13:17.140 --> 00:13:18.200
  • BECAUSE I'M A NUMBERS PERSON,
  • 00:13:18.200 --> 00:13:19.290
  • I KNEW EXACTLY WHAT IT WAS.
  • 00:13:19.290 --> 00:13:21.070
  • SO I TOLD HIM THE NUMBER.
  • 00:13:21.070 --> 00:13:22.070
  • AND REMEMBER,
  • 00:13:22.070 --> 00:13:23.110
  • IT WAS AN OFFERING,
  • 00:13:23.110 --> 00:13:24.160
  • NOT AN HONORARIUM.
  • 00:13:24.160 --> 00:13:25.230
  • AN HONORARIUM IS WITH ZEROES,
  • 00:13:25.230 --> 00:13:26.270
  • IT IS A ROUND AMOUNT
  • 00:13:26.270 --> 00:13:27.280
  • LIKE $250 OR $500
  • 00:13:27.280 --> 00:13:29.080
  • OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT.
  • 00:13:29.080 --> 00:13:30.230
  • THIS WAS AN OFFERING THAT HAD
  • 00:13:30.250 --> 00:13:33.250
  • DOLLARS AND CENTS ON IT.
  • 00:13:33.250 --> 00:13:35.090
  • SO I TOLD HIM
  • 00:13:35.090 --> 00:13:36.150
  • HOW MUCH IT WAS.
  • 00:13:36.150 --> 00:13:37.180
  • AND THEN THIS GUY SAYS TO ME,
  • 00:13:37.180 --> 00:13:40.140
  • "WHERE'S THE CHECK?"
  • 00:13:40.140 --> 00:13:43.140
  • LIKE THAT.
  • 00:13:43.140 --> 00:13:45.080
  • I KNOW YOU'RE SUPPOSED
  • 00:13:45.080 --> 00:13:46.120
  • TO TELL THE TRUTH
  • 00:13:46.120 --> 00:13:47.160
  • BUT I GOT KIND OF FLUSTERED
  • 00:13:47.160 --> 00:13:48.190
  • AND I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT TO SAY
  • 00:13:48.190 --> 00:13:49.260
  • AND I DIDN'T KNOW WHY
  • 00:13:49.260 --> 00:13:51.030
  • THIS GUY WAS QUESTIONING ME
  • 00:13:51.030 --> 00:13:52.080
  • SO I JUST HEARD MYSELF SAY,
  • 00:13:52.080 --> 00:13:54.260
  • "DEBBIE HAS IT."
  • 00:13:54.260 --> 00:13:56.200
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:14:00.270 --> 00:14:03.270
  • SO HE SAYS TO ME,
  • 00:14:03.270 --> 00:14:06.070
  • "GO GET IT, I WANT TO SEE IT."
  • 00:14:06.160 --> 00:14:09.160
  • SO I SAID, "OKAY."
  • 00:14:09.160 --> 00:14:11.250
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:14:11.250 --> 00:14:13.100
  • SO I GET UP AND I WALK DOWN
  • 00:14:13.100 --> 00:14:14.220
  • WHERE DEBBIE IS
  • 00:14:14.220 --> 00:14:16.080
  • AND I LEANED DOWN TO HER
  • 00:14:16.080 --> 00:14:17.210
  • AND I SAID, "HOW'S YOUR PIZZA?
  • 00:14:17.210 --> 00:14:18.260
  • IS IT GOOD? OKAY! GOOD!"
  • 00:14:18.260 --> 00:14:20.110
  • THERE IS NOTHING ELSE TO SAY.
  • 00:14:20.110 --> 00:14:22.060
  • THERE'S NO CHECK.
  • 00:14:22.070 --> 00:14:25.070
  • SO I GO BACK AND AGAIN,
  • 00:14:25.070 --> 00:14:26.180
  • I KNOW YOU'RE SUPPOSED
  • 00:14:26.180 --> 00:14:27.230
  • TO TELL THE TRUTH
  • 00:14:27.230 --> 00:14:28.250
  • BUT I DON'T KNOW WHY
  • 00:14:28.250 --> 00:14:29.270
  • THIS GUY IS ASKING ME THIS
  • 00:14:29.270 --> 00:14:30.290
  • AND WHY IS HE QUESTIONING ME?
  • 00:14:30.290 --> 00:14:32.010
  • AND I DIDN'T WANT TO SAY,
  • 00:14:32.010 --> 00:14:33.040
  • IN MY HEART
  • 00:14:33.040 --> 00:14:34.060
  • I DIDN'T WANT TO BRAG.
  • 00:14:34.060 --> 00:14:35.100
  • I DIDN'T WANT TO SAY,
  • 00:14:35.100 --> 00:14:36.140
  • "WE GAVE IT TO A MISSIONARY.
  • 00:14:36.140 --> 00:14:37.180
  • IT IS THE ONLY MEETING
  • 00:14:37.180 --> 00:14:38.220
  • WE HAVE THIS MONTH."
  • 00:14:38.220 --> 00:14:39.260
  • I DIDN'T WANT TO SAY THAT.
  • 00:14:39.260 --> 00:14:41.000
  • SO I JUST HEARD MYSELF AGAIN,
  • 00:14:41.000 --> 00:14:43.140
  • I SAID, "IT'S IN THE CAR."
  • 00:14:43.180 --> 00:14:46.180
  • HE SAID,
  • 00:14:46.180 --> 00:14:48.210
  • "IT'S NOT IN THE CAR."
  • 00:14:48.210 --> 00:14:51.210
  • SO I SAID, "WHERE IS IT?"
  • 00:14:53.070 --> 00:14:56.070
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:14:58.160 --> 00:15:01.180
  • YOU KNOW SO MUCH, PAL!
  • 00:15:01.180 --> 00:15:04.080
  • I JUST STARTED
  • 00:15:04.080 --> 00:15:05.210
  • GETTING FRUSTRATED.
  • 00:15:05.210 --> 00:15:06.240
  • WHY IS THIS GUY
  • 00:15:06.240 --> 00:15:08.030
  • GRILLING ME LIKE THIS?
  • 00:15:08.030 --> 00:15:09.120
  • WHAT'S GOING ON HERE?
  • 00:15:09.120 --> 00:15:10.240
  • AND THIS GUY SAID TO ME,
  • 00:15:10.240 --> 00:15:11.290
  • WHO BY THE WAY,
  • 00:15:11.290 --> 00:15:13.030
  • IS NOW A MEMBER OF OUR CHURCH
  • 00:15:13.030 --> 00:15:14.070
  • AND HAS VERIFIED THIS,
  • 00:15:14.070 --> 00:15:15.130
  • THIS TESTIMONY.
  • 00:15:15.130 --> 00:15:16.200
  • THIS GUY SAID TO ME,
  • 00:15:16.200 --> 00:15:18.060
  • "YOU GAVE IT AWAY,
  • 00:15:18.060 --> 00:15:19.120
  • DIDN'T YOU?"
  • 00:15:19.120 --> 00:15:21.280
  • I SAID, "YES."
  • 00:15:21.280 --> 00:15:23.050
  • I SAID,
  • 00:15:23.050 --> 00:15:24.140
  • "HOW DO YOU KNOW THAT?"
  • 00:15:24.140 --> 00:15:25.150
  • I'D ONLY MET HIM
  • 00:15:25.150 --> 00:15:26.240
  • ONE TIME BEFORE.
  • 00:15:26.240 --> 00:15:27.270
  • I SAID,
  • 00:15:27.270 --> 00:15:29.000
  • "HOW DO YOU KNOW THAT?"
  • 00:15:29.000 --> 00:15:30.060
  • HE SAID,
  • 00:15:30.060 --> 00:15:31.100
  • "BECAUSE GOD TOLD ME."
  • 00:15:31.100 --> 00:15:32.160
  • HE REACHED IN HIS POCKET
  • 00:15:32.160 --> 00:15:33.190
  • AND HE PULLED OUT A CHECK
  • 00:15:33.190 --> 00:15:34.240
  • HE HAD WRITTEN BEFORE HE CAME
  • 00:15:34.240 --> 00:15:35.290
  • TO THE SERVICE THAT NIGHT,
  • 00:15:35.290 --> 00:15:37.020
  • AND I FOUND OUT LATER,
  • 00:15:37.020 --> 00:15:38.050
  • WHICH I DIDN'T EVEN KNOW,
  • 00:15:38.050 --> 00:15:39.080
  • HE DIDN'T EVEN
  • 00:15:39.080 --> 00:15:40.110
  • ATTEND THAT CHURCH.
  • 00:15:40.110 --> 00:15:41.140
  • HE JUST HEARD I WAS SPEAKING
  • 00:15:41.140 --> 00:15:42.200
  • AND GOD TOLD HIM
  • 00:15:42.200 --> 00:15:43.240
  • TO GO GIVE ME THIS CHECK.
  • 00:15:43.240 --> 00:15:44.270
  • SO HE WRITES A CHECK OUT
  • 00:15:44.270 --> 00:15:46.060
  • BEFORE HE COMES.
  • 00:15:46.060 --> 00:15:47.110
  • HE HOLDS THIS CHECK OUT THAT'S
  • 00:15:47.110 --> 00:15:48.190
  • MADE OUT TO OUR MINISTRY
  • 00:15:48.190 --> 00:15:49.200
  • AND HE HOLDS IT UP LIKE THIS.
  • 00:15:49.200 --> 00:15:50.220
  • NOW LISTEN TO ME,
  • 00:15:50.220 --> 00:15:51.260
  • BEFORE GOD IN HEAVEN AND
  • 00:15:51.260 --> 00:15:53.020
  • THIS MAN HAS VERIFIED THIS,
  • 00:15:53.020 --> 00:15:54.110
  • IT WAS EXACTLY TEN TIMES
  • 00:15:54.110 --> 00:15:56.080
  • THE AMOUNT OF THE CHECK
  • 00:15:56.080 --> 00:15:57.220
  • DOWN TO THE PENNY.
  • 00:15:58.290 --> 00:16:00.230
  • EXACTLY!
  • 00:16:00.230 --> 00:16:02.070
  • HE SAID, "HERE."
  • 00:16:02.070 --> 00:16:04.040
  • AND HE'S HOLDING THE TOP OF IT
  • 00:16:04.040 --> 00:16:05.110
  • AND I REACHED OUT
  • 00:16:05.110 --> 00:16:06.130
  • BUT HE WOULDN'T LET IT GO.
  • 00:16:07.200 --> 00:16:08.240
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:16:08.240 --> 00:16:11.140
  • I REALIZED HE WANTS
  • 00:16:11.140 --> 00:16:13.150
  • TO TELL ME SOMETHING.
  • 00:16:13.150 --> 00:16:14.260
  • HE WANTS TO SAY SOMETHING.
  • 00:16:14.260 --> 00:16:16.010
  • I NOW KNOW HE WANTED
  • 00:16:16.010 --> 00:16:17.050
  • TO IMPART SOMETHING.
  • 00:16:17.050 --> 00:16:18.100
  • YOU DO KNOW
  • 00:16:18.100 --> 00:16:19.150
  • THERE IS A GIFT OF GIVING
  • 00:16:19.150 --> 00:16:20.200
  • IN THE BODY OF CHRIST.
  • 00:16:20.200 --> 00:16:21.200
  • THERE IS A GIFT OF GIVING;
  • 00:16:21.200 --> 00:16:22.250
  • THAT IS A SPIRITUAL GIFT.
  • 00:16:22.250 --> 00:16:24.010
  • SO I'M HOLDING THE BOTTOM,
  • 00:16:24.010 --> 00:16:25.240
  • HE'S HOLDING THE TOP,
  • 00:16:25.240 --> 00:16:27.020
  • HE LOOKED RIGHT ACROSS
  • 00:16:27.020 --> 00:16:28.060
  • THE TOP OF THE CHECK
  • 00:16:28.060 --> 00:16:29.070
  • RIGHT INTO MY EYES
  • 00:16:29.070 --> 00:16:30.080
  • AND HE SAID,
  • 00:16:30.080 --> 00:16:31.090
  • "GOD IS ABOUT TO TEACH YOU
  • 00:16:31.090 --> 00:16:32.150
  • ABOUT GIVING SO YOU CAN
  • 00:16:32.150 --> 00:16:33.160
  • TEACH THE BODY OF CHRIST."
  • 00:16:33.160 --> 00:16:34.170
  • AND HE LET THE CHECK GO.
  • 00:16:34.170 --> 00:16:36.160
  • HERE'S WHAT CAME INTO MY MIND
  • 00:16:36.160 --> 00:16:38.250
  • WHEN HE LET THAT CHECK GO.
  • 00:16:38.250 --> 00:16:40.120
  • HERE'S WHAT I THOUGHT,
  • 00:16:41.210 --> 00:16:44.210
  • THIS IS GOD'S MONEY.
  • 00:16:44.210 --> 00:16:47.160
  • THIS IS NOT MY MONEY,
  • 00:16:47.160 --> 00:16:49.010
  • THIS IS GOD'S MONEY.
  • 00:16:49.010 --> 00:16:50.130
  • ALL OF IT FROM NOW ON
  • 00:16:50.130 --> 00:16:51.200
  • IS GOD'S MONEY.
  • 00:16:51.200 --> 00:16:52.260
  • BY GOD'S GRACE I HAVE HAD
  • 00:16:52.260 --> 00:16:54.080
  • THAT THOUGHT WITH EVERY CHECK
  • 00:16:54.080 --> 00:16:55.190
  • I'VE RECEIVED SINCE THEN
  • 00:16:55.190 --> 00:16:57.280
  • AND WE'VE BEEN VERY BLESSED
  • 00:16:57.280 --> 00:16:59.100
  • FINANCIALLY BECAUSE FOR SOME
  • 00:16:59.100 --> 00:17:00.220
  • REASON PEOPLE BUY THE BOOKS
  • 00:17:00.220 --> 00:17:02.050
  • THAT I WRITE AND SO WE'VE
  • 00:17:02.050 --> 00:17:03.140
  • BEEN VERY, VERY BLESSED.
  • 00:17:03.140 --> 00:17:04.200
  • I STILL DON'T KNOW WHY.
  • 00:17:04.200 --> 00:17:05.250
  • BUT WE'VE BEEN VERY BLESSED.
  • 00:17:05.250 --> 00:17:07.000
  • WE'VE BEEN ABLE
  • 00:17:07.000 --> 00:17:08.050
  • TO GIVE A WHOLE LOT
  • 00:17:08.050 --> 00:17:09.090
  • Sheila: ISN'T THAT
  • 00:17:12.100 --> 00:17:13.190
  • A LIBERATING MESSAGE?
  • 00:17:13.190 --> 00:17:15.020
  • THAT'S BEAUTIFUL!
  • 00:17:15.020 --> 00:17:16.110
  • AND IT'S NOT JUST
  • 00:17:16.110 --> 00:17:17.210
  • A RANDOM THING.
  • 00:17:17.210 --> 00:17:19.020
  • WANTS YOU AND I TO HAVE.
  • 00:17:20.150 --> 00:17:22.220
  • I HONESTLY THINK,
  • 00:17:22.220 --> 00:17:24.030
  • I'VE GOT TO READ THIS BOOK
  • 00:17:24.030 --> 00:17:25.110
  • OVER AND OVER BECAUSE
  • 00:17:25.110 --> 00:17:27.170
  • I KNOW THAT THE PRINCIPLES
  • 00:17:27.170 --> 00:17:29.000
  • THAT ARE IN HERE
  • 00:17:29.000 --> 00:17:30.070
  • ARE PRINCIPLES IN GOD'S WORD
  • 00:17:30.070 --> 00:17:32.150
  • SO THAT YOU AND I CAN BE FREE
  • 00:17:32.150 --> 00:17:34.210
  • FROM FINANCIAL WORRY.
  • 00:17:34.210 --> 00:17:36.090
  • AND NOT JUST THAT,
  • 00:17:36.090 --> 00:17:37.210
  • THERE'S SUCH...
  • 00:17:37.210 --> 00:17:38.290
  • I LOVED WHEN PASTOR MORRIS
  • 00:17:38.290 --> 00:17:40.090
  • TALKED ABOUT THE FACT
  • 00:17:40.090 --> 00:17:41.160
  • THAT IT IS NOT JUST THE TITHE,
  • 00:17:41.160 --> 00:17:42.260
  • THE TITHE IS THE LORD'S.
  • 00:17:42.260 --> 00:17:44.110
  • IF YOU'RE KEEPING
  • 00:17:44.110 --> 00:17:45.160
  • THE TITHE BACK
  • 00:17:45.160 --> 00:17:46.220
  • YOU'RE STEALING FROM HIM.
  • 00:17:46.220 --> 00:17:47.260
  • BUT WHEN WE HONOR GOD
  • 00:17:47.260 --> 00:17:49.020
  • WITH ALL OUR MONEY,
  • 00:17:49.020 --> 00:17:50.100
  • WITH OUR FINANCES,
  • 00:17:50.100 --> 00:17:51.150
  • THEN GOD IN HIS BEAUTIFUL WAY
  • 00:17:51.150 --> 00:17:53.030
  • MAKES IT POSSIBLE
  • 00:17:53.030 --> 00:17:54.100
  • FOR US TO GIVE AND TO GIVE.
  • 00:17:54.100 --> 00:17:57.100
  • THAT'S THE JOY!
  • 00:17:57.100 --> 00:17:58.260
  • MONEY SHOULDN'T BE
  • 00:17:58.260 --> 00:18:00.070
  • THIS GREAT THING
  • 00:18:00.070 --> 00:18:01.130
  • THAT WE WORRY ABOUT
  • 00:18:01.130 --> 00:18:02.200
  • OR WE STRESS ABOUT.
  • 00:18:02.200 --> 00:18:05.180
  • GOD HAS ENTRUSTED US
  • 00:18:05.180 --> 00:18:07.040
  • WITH THINGS SO THEN
  • 00:18:07.040 --> 00:18:08.130
  • WE CAN HELP OTHER PEOPLE.
  • 00:18:08.130 --> 00:18:09.250
  • I THINK, FOR ME,
  • 00:18:09.250 --> 00:18:11.210
  • ONE OF THE GREATEST JOYS
  • 00:18:11.210 --> 00:18:13.030
  • IN THE WAYS THAT WE CAN MEET
  • 00:18:13.030 --> 00:18:14.170
  • THE NEEDS OF OTHER PEOPLE
  • 00:18:14.170 --> 00:18:16.150
  • IS THROUGH THE MINISTRIES
  • 00:18:16.150 --> 00:18:18.120
  • HERE AT LIFE OUTREACH .
  • 00:18:18.120 --> 00:18:20.060
  • ON THE ROAD
  • 00:18:21.200 --> 00:18:22.240
  • AND YOU'VE SENT ME
  • 00:18:22.240 --> 00:18:23.280
  • LITTLE NOTES ON FACEBOOK
  • 00:18:23.280 --> 00:18:25.000
  • AND TOLD ME HOW MUCH
  • 00:18:25.000 --> 00:18:26.050
  • SO HERE WE ARE AND
  • 00:18:27.260 --> 00:18:29.230
  • WE'RE MOVING INTO PRAYING
  • 00:18:29.230 --> 00:18:31.280
  • FOR WATER WELLS THIS YEAR.
  • 00:18:31.280 --> 00:18:34.010
  • AND I REALLY BELIEVE,
  • 00:18:34.010 --> 00:18:35.130
  • IF YOU AND I JOIN TOGETHER
  • 00:18:35.130 --> 00:18:37.100
  • WE CAN SEE GOD
  • 00:18:37.100 --> 00:18:38.140
  • DO SOMETHING MIRACULOUS.
  • 00:18:38.140 --> 00:18:40.200
  • THERE ARE SO MANY AREAS
  • 00:18:40.200 --> 00:18:41.290
  • IN THE WORLD
  • 00:18:41.290 --> 00:18:43.090
  • AND AFRICA IN PARTICULAR,
  • 00:18:43.090 --> 00:18:45.060
  • WHERE CHILDREN ARE DYING
  • 00:18:45.060 --> 00:18:47.030
  • DAY AFTER DAY AFTER DAY
  • 00:18:47.030 --> 00:18:50.010
  • SIMPLY BECAUSE THEY HAVE
  • 00:18:50.010 --> 00:18:51.240
  • NO CLEAN WATER.
  • 00:18:52.150 --> 00:18:55.150
  • CAN YOU IMAGINE?
  • 00:18:55.150 --> 00:18:56.170
  • I DON'T KNOW IF YOU'RE A MOM
  • 00:18:56.170 --> 00:18:57.240
  • OR A DAD OR A GRANDMA
  • 00:18:57.240 --> 00:18:59.090
  • OR SISTER,
  • 00:18:59.090 --> 00:19:00.260
  • BUT IF YOU SUDDENLY WENT
  • 00:19:00.260 --> 00:19:02.040
  • TO CHECK ON YOUR LITTLE ONE,
  • 00:19:02.040 --> 00:19:03.150
  • AND YOU KNOW WHAT
  • 00:19:03.150 --> 00:19:04.180
  • THEY'RE LIKE AT TWO,
  • 00:19:04.180 --> 00:19:05.250
  • THEY'RE ALL OVER THE PLACE
  • 00:19:05.250 --> 00:19:06.280
  • AND THEY'RE FULL OF LIFE
  • 00:19:06.280 --> 00:19:08.020
  • AND GETTING INTO MISCHIEF
  • 00:19:08.020 --> 00:19:09.050
  • AND YOU HAVE TO KEEP
  • 00:19:09.050 --> 00:19:10.070
  • AN EYE ON THEM.
  • 00:19:10.070 --> 00:19:11.130
  • AND SUDDENLY YOU DISCOVER
  • 00:19:11.130 --> 00:19:12.190
  • THAT THIS DARLING
  • 00:19:12.190 --> 00:19:13.230
  • YOUNGEST CHILD,
  • 00:19:13.230 --> 00:19:15.040
  • THE JOY OF YOUR FAMILY
  • 00:19:15.040 --> 00:19:16.120
  • HAS PASSED AWAY SIMPLY BECAUSE
  • 00:19:16.120 --> 00:19:18.290
  • THEY DRANK CONTAMINATED WATER.
  • 00:19:18.290 --> 00:19:21.220
  • IT'S SO WRONG
  • 00:19:21.220 --> 00:19:23.000
  • AND IT DOESN'T HAVE
  • 00:19:23.000 --> 00:19:24.080
  • TO BE THAT WAY.
  • 00:19:24.080 --> 00:19:25.170
  • IF YOU ARE ABLE TO GIVE $48,
  • 00:19:25.200 --> 00:19:28.200
  • NOW MOST OF US,
  • 00:19:28.200 --> 00:19:29.270
  • IF WE BUDGET CAREFULLY,
  • 00:19:29.270 --> 00:19:31.020
  • WE COULD DO THAT.
  • 00:19:31.020 --> 00:19:32.060
  • DO YOU KNOW THAT WILL PROVIDE
  • 00:19:32.060 --> 00:19:33.150
  • CLEAN DRINKING WATER
  • 00:19:33.150 --> 00:19:34.230
  • FOR TEN PEOPLE FOR
  • 00:19:34.230 --> 00:19:36.150
  • THE REST OF THEIR LIVES?
