Getting past the "secrecy doctrine" of Christian giving

"Giving, like every other gift, ... is taught best when it is modelled."  MEDA board member Peter Dueck helps us get past the left hand/right hand "secrecy doctrine."   YES! He points out that Jesus announces how much the widow gave.  I would add the story of Zaccheus' public declaration of giving too.  Helpful article from the Marketplace, a magazine for Christians in business published by Mennonite Economic Development Agency (MEDA).
