This is so true. What's worse is that it's considered normal. That's the way it is across the country. Even the institutional system considers it holy that 75 - 85% of the giving is devoted to buy hired help and buildings that benefit mostly the givers themselves. That's pooling, not giving.

I really like the distinction between "pooling resources" and "sacrificial giving." I have heard of giving to missions and mercy ministries 10% of their budget right off the top. It would be nice to see the institutional church lead the charge towards sacrificial giving.

Sadly this cartoon (in fact like so many) reflect true society. Everything BUT the wallet!! Who did the original cartoon??
