"Money in the church should be treated more like the gift you never imagined you could get and less about the tube socks you requested from grandma."

What would happen in your congregation if offerings would be received with this attitude by the congregation leaders?

There is an attitude held by leaders in the congregations that the offerings received are always disappointing.  Implicitly the message is communicated - shame on you, you ought to be giving more.
