If there was any great time to be at Preston Meadow Lutheran Church, it was this past Sunday, as members of the Texas church got blessed by their pastor, who in turn charged them to be a blessing.
Pastor Paul Mussachio gifted attendees at Preston Meadow Lutheran Church in Plano with envelopes holding various amounts of money totaling $125,000.
“Best surprise ever!” one member tweeted. “I can’t wait to figure out how to spend it to bless others. What a great lesson on giving for my kids.”
The move shocked a lot of members, many exclaiming how much the money was.
The message included the Bible verse, Luke 6:38: “Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap; for the measure you give will be the measure you get back.”
Mussachio said generosity is one of the main values of their church.
“Generosity, we believe, isn’t how much you have or how much you give, but it is who you are toward other people in life, and we wanted to live that out in a big way,” the pastor said
