Check out this article, I think this guy is on the right track. Last night at the Refuge we talked about giving things up to please God. We talked about how there is a cost involved. One of the guys asked me, "does that mean I have to buy God a gift?" I don't know Dan de Vaul's heart or where he is with the Lord, but he is giving up a great deal. He is opening up his home and risking a lot. I realize that he has asked for some finances from those that stay with him, but I don't really see a problem with that.
