The Best Money You'll Ever Spend

In a world full of desperation, countless Lazarus' sitting at our gate clanging for our crumbs, one can grow disheartened, overwhelmed by the need. And paralyzed into inaction. I know I do at times. But for those of you with a Kingdom pulse, those who believe Jesus when he says in Matthew 25:35-40
"For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, 36I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me. 37"Then the righteous will answer him, 'Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink?38When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? 39When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?'

40"The King will reply, 'I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.'

I want to offer you one of the most simple ways to tangibly show the love of Christ to "the least of these". I smiled through tears as I watched this video tonight. For those of you who have never had the blessing of partnering with Compassion International and wonder how your $38 a month is actually spent, go here. Check it out!

Serving alongside of you,
