“The kingdom is where God provides for all that we need. It is the realm of sufficiency where we are no longer pulled here and there by anxiety about having enough.” (Nouwen, p. 24)
Fundraising specifically, concretely, and clearly empowers the kingdom of God and its continual coming. It helps us allow the kingdom and seeking it–in the spirit of Matthew 6:33–to be number one in our lives. Within God’s kingdom we have all that we need. We have a sufficiency and we never need to be anxious about having enough.
