In Giving, We Receive

Our church regularly visits our local church school to give assemblies and teach classes. it is a wonderful ministry, and great to be able to share the good news with young people.

This week, the team were not able to visit in person so instead recorded a video. I wanted to share this with you.

And as well as giving the children something to think about, it also talks of the shoebox appeal. we support Operation: Christmas Child which provides gifts two children living in poverty across the world at Christmas time. If you have not heard of it before, then do check it out.

I have been thinking a lot about giving lately. i’ve said it before, and will no doubt say it again… A Christian who does not give, is like a Christian who does not pray. God has blessed me a great deal, and expects me to use that for the purpose of His kingdom.

How about you?

You may not feel like you have very much, but what has God put in your hand to use?You may not feel like you have very much, but what has God put in your hand to use?

I hope you enjoy the video!

  1. Andy, I’m unable to watch the video, but I wanted to take time to say, God bless you and your witness in this space, on our journey. Giving is something that has been instilled in my heart and it truly brings joy doesn’t it? May 2022 be a year of giving–not just finances, but time, hope, a smile, and encouragement to our fellow humans. May the light of Christ shine through us and light a path for those in the darkness. My father and I are both facing some health challenges. But it’s with faith, and the knowledge of WHOSE hands we are in, that gives us hope and strength! May God continue to provide you and your family with hope, love, peace, and joy as you continue to give in HIS name.

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words, and may all of those blessings return on you as well. Sorry to hear that you and your father are going through some health troubles, I’ll be sure to pray for you both. May this new year bring you peace and closeness to Jesus as you continue to serve him.
