Encouragement means to give someone confidence or boldness to do something. I want to encourage you, this week but one of the things that encouraged me was a tweet that I got, we got a tweet from a pastor down in Cebu, Philippines. Pastor David wanted to encourage both Justin Peters and myself because of the conference that we had done down there.
And he sent a message. and this is a very encouraging message now let me let you know that in the Philippines there's an issue with tithing. They put it up as a doctrine that's almost like a sin if you don't give 10% to the church that comes into play. We had spoken also about women's role in the church if women should preach and this is what he said the conference, by the way, was called snatch, so you're going to hear that. Here's what he said. “update on snatch local pastor in Cebu preached on Sunday that from now on, they will only preach from Scripture and have rejected tithing as a doctrine. A woman was also asked to preach but she said, 'No, I won't find a man to do it'. That's greatly encouraging to both Justin and I why because it says that people understood the things that we are teaching as being from Scripture, and they were willing to stand up with boldness and take action that encourages me to encourage others.
