“The pressure in our culture to secure our own future and to control our lives as much as possible does not find support in the Bible.” (Nouwen, p. 31-32)
Fundraising helps people to stop storing up treasures on earth and start storing up treasures in heaven in the spirit of Matthew 6:19-21.
It also helps them settle the issue of serving two masters. “No servant can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and wealth.” (Luke 16:13 NASB)
