    My husband and I were so impressed and inspired by The Big Give. It was so awesome to see how the Lord used Oprah to bless people who were really struggling and needed a financial miracle. We pray this show will open peoples hearts to give more. There are alot of hurting people out there who really need encouragement and prayer.

    Winfrey and ABC have taken the much-maligned reality TV format and used it to create a show that both entertains and encourages viewers to think about such matters as how best to help others.

    Is it strange to make good will and charity into a win-lose proposition? Is it peculiar to judge the givers on their manner of giving, to quantify their largesse? To me, yes, it is, and the show makes for awkward viewing as a result.
  3. There also is something disturbing about making a game out of charitable acts.
