Why Not Follow the Leader?

Remember your leaders, who spoke the word of God to you. Consider the outcome of their way of life and imitate their faith.

Hebrews 13:7 New International Version (NIV)

Who do I admire? How do they manage their giving?
Ask someone I admire who belongs to a church if they give to their church. If so, how and why. Why not imitate the giving habits of people I admire?
