Yep, when it comes to charities and charitable organisations, I’m discriminatory. This is how I see it; there are way too many people living beneath the poverty line. They lack clean water, food, shelter, safety, necessary medical care, education and on many different levels – freedom. These problems are huge but this is where God comes in – only He is big enough to fix them. He also has a plan.
Secular organisations and charities do a lot of good but there’s something they can’t give – God. And this world needs God. It is estimated that there are 2 billion people out there who have never heard the name of Jesus or been given the opportunity to respond to His love. When I donate to christian charities and organisations, my money goes not only to helping out with physical and emotional but also (and more importantly) spiritual needs. It sends people to places I can’t go to have conversations I can’t have.
Physical poverty may last a lifetime but spiritual poverty is eternal.
These charities do a great job meeting peoples immediate needs and also sharing God’s love:
What about you – what charities do you give to? Do you give to only secular or only christian charities? Do you give to both?
