A Different Perspective - June 19

Things we take for granted

by Berni Dymet

Matt. 25:40 ‘Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me.'

I have a good friend by the name of Joseph - who lives in Cape Town South Africa. He's the head of a Radio Training School at Media Village -check them out on the web - mediavillage.info.

Anyhow, Joseph was saying to me that of the eight hundred or so million people who live in Africa, more have access to radio than to clean drinking water.

That stopped me in my tracks. It makes you realize the things we take for granted. Jesus said if you give a drink to someone who's thirsty, it's as though you're giving me a drink.

So many people these days have investment portfolios. But there's a concept I love which is called a "giving portfolio". Can I encourage you to establish one - and whatever you do - include the poor and the needy in that portfolio? I'm not talking loose change. I'm talking serious giving. 

There are so many people on this planet who are hurting. I'm talking - giving that costs us something. Giving till it hurts and then some.
