Quotable - We've been taught to give, but how do we make money?

"Last night I taught a Kingdom Business seminar to about 100 local Christian Business people. They were about 60% business ladies. They really liked the seminar. Several said God touched their hearts.

One guy said, "this is what Tanzania needs. We have been taught to give money by the church, but the Church has never taught us how to make money. Tonight many of my questions were answered. We need more of this." I met with two govt. officials the District Commissionar and the Trade officer. They confirmed the need for training. The trade officer is a believer (a pastor even) and he said "our greatest need is to have our minds transformed. Our people are surrounded by opportunity but they can't see it."

So what do you think? In times of global economic crisis, how much should the church give back in on the job training? Should that be different in places like Africa where few have little to give but much to learn?

While the need might not be nearly as accute, the same questions run through the heads of Christian young people today in North America.
