$18.75...What Will that Buy?

$18.75 is what I saved this week from not buying sodas and Lattes in order to save the money for Blood & Water Missions. My $18.75 will buy fresh water for 18 people for a whole year. It's a small sacrifice on my part and may not seem like much but if more people joined in with individual small sacrifices we could make a HUGE difference. Today begins week 2 and I'm beginning to see that sacrifices like this can reap huge benefits in so many different directions. Obviously there is the direct impact of giving someone water for a year and that is enough if that was all I got. But I see God working in other ways too. The more I give and sacrifice the more my spirit is yearning for Him to fill me up. I see my kids and my wife in a new light and I even had my oldest text me today to tell me he was praying for me. There is no greater blessing than that for a father to know your kid is being lead by God. But wait there is more! I have this undeniable Holy expectation in my spirit that God is going to do something. Faith is increased, new vision for advancing His Kingdom.
I could keep going but the bottom line is...Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you."
Luke 6:38
That is the kind of life I want on this earth and it should be what all Christians yearn what are you waiting for? Find something to sacrifice and give. You won't regret it. If you want to give to this cause it's not too late. Check out Core'y blog for more details.
