God will show you other giving
opportunities worthy of your support.
Think about, discuss or pray about the verse that relates most to
The Christian who is pure and without fault, from God the Father’s
point of view, is the one who takes care of orphans and widows, and
who remains true to the Lord.
I rescued the poor who cried for help, and the fatherless who had
none to assist him. The man who was dying blessed me; I made the
widow’s heart sing.
And if anyone gives even a cup of cold water to one of these little
ones because he is my disciple, I tell you the truth, he will
certainly not lose his reward.
Do not forget to entertain strangers, for by so doing some people
have entertained angels without knowing it. Remember those in prison
as if you were their fellow prisoners, and those who are mistreated
as if you yourselves were suffering.
(Paul said to the Christians in Phillipi) You have done right in
helping me in my present difficulty.
They honored us in many ways and when we were ready to sail, they
furnished us with the supplies we needed.
When you give a banquet, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame,
the blind, and you will be blessed. Although they cannot repay you,
you will be repaid at the resurrection of the righteous.
You have not lived until you have done
for someone who can never repay you.
John Bunyan 1688
Factory worker’s $500 miracle bonus
Our 3-year-old church had a chance to buy a
$2-million-dollar building for only $500,000 if we could come up with
the money in 90 days. I told everyone in the church to be watching for
unexpected financial provisions in their life during this 90-day period.
A factory worker, named Mike, told me he thought it was stupid for me to
tell people to look for unexpected monies so people could give
generously to the building project. But the next week, Mike’s factory
foreman called him into the office and gave Mike an envelope. Mike
thought it was a pink slip saying he was getting laid off or fired. But
instead, it was a $500 bonus for his good work. Mike couldn’t believe
it. He had never heard of anyone in his factory getting a bonus before.
Mike joyfully gave all $500 to the 90-day building fund project.
