I just got some cool $5 Starbucks cards. For an extra .25, they imprinted the card carriers with:
This is a practical way to show God’s love.
We think most people have heard that God loves them but very few have seen that love in practical ways.
We’re out to change that.

And enjoy the coffee!
Today in the parking lot outside our local movie rental place, I saw a young couple with a very tiny baby. Inspired by something my wife had done in a similar situation, I went up to the dad with two cards in my hand. I said, “I noticed you have a young child and I bet it’s hard to get out on dates.”
Young Dad: “Uh-huh.”
Me: “Do you guys like Starbucks?”
Me: “Here are two cards, each worth $5.”
He was incredibly thankful.
And I got to leave with an incredible sense of being filled with God’s love.
It’s so true: you can’t outgive God.
