Starbucks Talk with Marsel

Starbucks. Afternoon tea chat with my friend and bro, Marsel. Among other things, we were talking about giving as a spiritual principle. I'm glad we both read the Bible about this... and pastor Joel Osteen's bestseller "Your Best Life Now" (see We both agree to dare to "sow a seed" in our time of need. Instead of thinking what we lack, we turn our attention away from ourselves and sow seeds of God's goodness by helping others. Intriguing, unnatural, isn't it? But Marsel and I know that God's principles and promises are true.
