Christmas Gifts for those in need – #GoatFundMe

For the past 3 years my family has received the Baptist Global Response (BGR) Christmas gift catalog by mail.

We started a tradition where I’ll give the catalog to my children and allow them to circle the gifts that they would like to purchase for those in need.

We like to do this with BGR because we generally get a letter back from them with stories about how our donation was used to help bless the people in the way that was represented in the catalog.

Because we own chickens of course one of the items we always purchase is chickens. And because it’s such a great need we also now add in water filtration systems. You may remember the Global Relief Run I directed with my local church last year was raising funds for water filtration.

It’s such an uplifting experience to get the letters back from BGR and to hear the stories of how these gifts are actually used.

I’d encourage each of you to take a look at the online gift catalog and select a gift or two to purchase this year. Make it a yearly tradition for you and your family.

He Himself Is Kind To Ungrateful And Evil Men

But love your enemies, and do good, and lend, expecting nothing in return; and your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High; for He Himself is kind to ungrateful and evil men. Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful. “Do not judge, and you will not be judged; and do not condemn, and you will not be condemned; pardon, and you will be pardoned. Give, and it will be given to you. They will pour into your lap a good measure-pressed down, shaken together, and running over. For by your standard of measure it will be measured to you in return.”
Luke 6:35‭-‬38 NASB

By His Doing You Are in Christ Jesus

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Gen. 1:1

For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son. John 3:16

But God raised Him from the dead. Act 13:30

But by His doing you are in Christ Jesus, who became to us wisdom from God, and righteousness and sanctification, and redemption, so that, just as it is written, ” Let him who boasts, boast in the Lord .”
1 Corinthians 1:30‭-‬31 NASB

Let Love Be Without Hypocrisy

Let love be without hypocrisy. Abhor what is evil; cling to what is good. Be devoted to one another in brotherly love; give preference to one another in honor; not lagging behind in diligence, fervent in spirit, serving the Lord; rejoicing in hope, persevering in tribulation, devoted to prayer, contributing to the needs of the saints, practicing hospitality.
Romans 12:9‭-‬13 NASB
