Matthew 14:30 "But when he saw the wind, he was afraid, and beginning to sink he cried out, "Lord, save me."
The world, really, is a scary place - natural disasters, disease, terrorism, and a hundred other things. But where do we place our hope, our trust - our vision? Where do we look for aid and comfort? When Peter's eyes were on the Lord, he had confidence. When he turned to look at his problems and took his eyes off the Lord, he fell apart. Sometimes God's call to support the work of His Church with our offerings makes us nervous. But put your eyes back on your Lord, trust Him, follow His Word, and all, really, will be well.
