Eternal Investments

Click HERE to read about where this photo came from.  Remember our campaign to “Back the Blocks” last May, as part of our remembrance of Chrissie’s 31-day battle? Amy Block and her family now live in Guatemala, serving as missionaries to orphans at Eagle’s Nest orphanage.  Amazing stuff.  Thanks to those of you who are making it possible for their family to serve Him.  They’re running this race well, and I know you’ll be so proud of them.  Money well spent folks.  Eternal investments.

Talk about eternal investments.  Click HERE for an excellent article on adoption fundraising.  Some of you are looking for ways to fundraise, some of you are looking to support families who are adopting, and some of you may not even realize that it’s considered “normal” for adoptive families to fundraise in order to cover the ginormous expense of adoption.  God commands ALL of us all to care for orphans.  I believe each and every one of us should sow into rescuing orphans.  Another great eternal investment.

Click HERE to learn about these Purpose Driven Dolls.  Holly and her daughter, over at Purpose Driven Family, are selling these dolls to help bring orphans home.  Another eternal investment.

There are COUNTLESS others who are raising funds to help orphans.  Countless families are desperately trying to gather the ransom to bring their child(ren) home.  Countless orphans are waiting for YOU to help them be united with their forever family.  Giving is so easy, it really is such a doable and effective way to help an orphan, while making an eternal investment. 

There are so many ways to invest our time, talent, and treasure.  There are so many scriptures to direct our paths, that tell us what is important to Him.  Invest your money wisely, for eternal purposes, for His glory.  If you're not sure where to invest, just read His Word.  You'll find that He thinks orphans are worthy of our investments.  Eternal investments.

Proverbs 28:27
He who gives to the poor will never want, but he who shuts his eyes will have many curses.

Proverbs 21:26
…the righteous gives and does not hold back.

Proverbs 22:9
He who is generous will be blessed…

Proverbs 3:27
Do not withhold good from those to whom it is due, when it is in your power to do it.

James 2:15-16
If a brother or sister is without clothing and in need of daily food, and one of you says to them, “Go in peace, be warmed and be filled,” and yet you do not give them what is necessary for their body, what use is that?

John 14:18
I will not leave you as orphans, I will come to you.

James 1:27
Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this:  to look after orphans and widows in their distress and keep oneself from being polluted by the world.
