For years I’ve put loose change at the end of each day into a jar. These days it’s a top-up savings account linked to my debit card. Usually, to have some extra money to fund Christmas, saving around £600 a year without even missing the money. It just slowly accumulates over time. I’ve recently wondered whether this money should be put into missions?
That amount you give to missions could dig a water well for a village; help someone set up a sewing or hairdressing business. It could buy a load of chickens, producing eggs and meat for sale. There is so much that my spare change could do.
Galatians 6:2 says, ‘Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.’ (NKJV) Something that seems such a small decision could make such a big difference. Use your spare change to enable others to live a better life.
The least amount, over time, can make a huge difference.
Lord, I pray you will inspire me to help something specific over time. Amen.
Whether it be some loose change or a debit card top-up pot, commit to supporting something which can make a difference on a mission trip.
