Should We Take A Step Back?

Many are concerned about the supposed financial crisis we are facing. However, it is in these times that we, as Christians, should continue to move forward in faith trusting God for funds needed, not only for personal needs, but also to meet the needs of our brothers and sisters.

There are no fewer orphans than before and no fewer street children on the streets. There are still millions of people without the Gospel. Do we only move forward when we have funds or do we trust God to meet needs of the Gospel and compassionate care that He has called us to trust Him for in spite of the times?

Yes, we need to be careful and not waste the limited funds He has given us, and at the same time, trust Him to use us to give to others with more urgent needs.

The Word of God says “He who watches the wind will not sow and he who looks at the clouds will not reap” (Ecclesiastes 11:4 , nasb).

Since He owns the cattle on a thousand hills, He is not in a financial crisis. If He wants to take dollars from one place and move it to another He can certainly do that.
May we be children who find joy in giving to His Body.
