There are so many needs that it can be overwhelming trying to decide who needs help the most. For those who believe in Jesus as Lord and Savior here are few tips to help you decide.
1. Will your gift further the gospel? There are too many evangelistic ministries to give your money to organizations that do not proclaim the love of Christ.
2. Have you thought about giving to an organization on many occasions, but you just haven’t gotten around to giving? You are withholding a blessing from a worthy cause, and you are missing out on a blessing for yourself. Call, write, or visit now, and give. God still speaks through that small voice inside.
3. Give. All of your earthly investments, even if they provide for a thousand generations, will mean nothing if you have withheld from the gospel or the needy. In the same manner whatever you invest in the gospel or the poor in this life will be returned to you in unexpected ways in this life and in the life to come. The foolish investor is the one who does not invest in eternal rewards that are guaranteed by God Himself.
Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again. ( Luke 6:38 )
