Today – as I continue to throw out a whole Lotta Lottie, I want to share 4 stories that have happened at FBC over the past 7 days. . . These stories will bless you.
#1. A young boy – 10 years old – whom I owed a $10 gift card to for quoting a verse of Scripture in front of the entire church – told me Sunday morning after the service, “Pastor Matt, please give that $10 bucks you owe me to Lottie.”
#2. An 8 year old girl – I was told by her parents – on the Sunday I preached about Lottie, told her mom and dad that she didn’t want or need a new IPad Mini for Christmas. She told them to take that money and give it to Lottie.
#3. The Monday after I preached the sermon on Lottie, a gentleman asked me if I always meant what I said from the pulpit (he was referring to the comment I made about shaving my beard for half the amount given for David Ortiz’s). He then proceeded to inform me that he would give $5500 to Lottie if I would shave it! Here’s a pic of the ‘Shaved Matt.’
#4. Yesterday morning a gentleman came to my office and handed me a check and said – “Someone gave Lottie $5500 for you to shave it? Well I’ll give $10,000 to Lottie if you grow it back!” It’s coming back baby.
I LOVE IT WHEN GOD’S PEOPLE GIVE SO OTHERS CAN HEAR. YES!!!!!!
