christian quotes…nowhere in the New Testament do we find God blessing people financially or with material possessions. We find that Jesus blesses people with sight, healing, inclusion, love, justice, forgiveness, but not with material possessions. In the early church, we find the same thing – people give away money, property and possessions rather than receiving them. When property, money or material possessions ARE mentioned, it is to narrate giving them away, guard against their dangers, advise the best use of them or condemn their abuse.

Dave lives in Long Gully in the regional city of Bendigo, and began Seeds Bendigo – it’s a small Christian community that seeks to help out in our neighbourhood. We are joined in this work by a bunch of great people who gather around St Matthew’s Anglican Church.
