Recognition

Not long ago I stayed at a wonderful facility run by one of the major Christian denominations in the USA. It was a great place. No complaints about how well it was run or the kind and servant-like attitudes of the staff.

However, I was bothered a little at how everything that didn't move had a plaque on it declaring who donated the bulk of the funds for that particular room, sculpture, building, etc.

The story in Luke 21:2 springs to mind. I always wanted to see a building named, "The Poor Widow".

good post. Lots to think about in this one. At what point does honoring someone's generosity become like the Pharisee who prayed in public so all could see... Jesus comments on anonymous works, etc...
