Needs: Our Reason to Give

"See What 'Yes' Can Do" Devotion for Oct. 13-14 | by the Rev. Steve Olson, Capital Campaign Consultant for Messiah | 

I do not mean that there should be relief for others and pressure on you, but it is a question of a fair balance between your present abundance and their need, so that their abundance may be for your need, in order that there may be a fair balance. - 2 Cor. 8:13-14 

REFLECT: Churches do not have needs - people do! As individuals, each of us has basic physiological needs that must be met to survive such as air, food, water, and sleep. In addition, we have safety needs. God calls us to seek justice as we strive to address the basic needs of all people. Our gifts will help to further our ministry of sharing this good news locally and globally.

PRAY: Our gifts will serve people in Vancouver and around the world.
