To turn the tide of materialism in the Christian community, we desperately need bold models of kingdom-centered living. Despite our need to do it in a way that doesn’t glorify people, we must hear each other’s stories about giving or else our people will not learn to give. Randy Alcorn, Money, Possessions & Eternity pg 298
We have two such stories to share this week.
- First, we received a note from the parents of a young woman. They enclosed a gift for the work in Nkumba, in honor of their daughter’s 27th birthday, stating that it was the only gift she requested for her birthday.
- Second, we received a note from a girl in college. Wanting to participate in meeting the needs of the poor, she sold some books and returned a new pair of shoes, and sent the money to those in need.
Let’s celebrate this Kingdom-centered living!
In lieu of “normal” gift giving, give a gift that keeps on giving…in eternity! Check out the Nkumba gift cards!
