Prayer Point for North Korea – January 23, 2012

We were unable to launch the Christmas Peeps on Christmas Eve due to wind conditions being unfavorable.  Our team is on stand by 24/7 once conditions are right.

Pray that God would, in his mercy, shift the wind direction toward North Korea so we can spread the simple joy of Christmas Peeps there.

During the month of December, we offered Pastor Foley’s, The Whole Life Offering, for free as an eBook.

The response was so good, we’re doing it again with his first book,Coach Your Champions.

In this book, Pastor Foley gives practical insight into Transformational Giving – the discipleship approach to fundraising and volunteering that is practice by Seoul USA today.

Here’s a some information about the book:

If your Christian nonprofit or church is struggling financially, you might find yourself saying, “If only we could find a few more givers with deep pockets to help us make budget!”

It’s an understandable sentiment.  But the Bible holds a totally different approach to major donor development – one completely counter to the secular fundraising approach ministries have been taught they must practice.  In this nuts and bolts nonprofit fable, you’ll learn how:

    • God has already sent your organization all the major donors you need.
    • Major donors are about more than big gifts; they’re champions awaiting your coaching to make a comprehensive difference in your cause.
    • Each and every person who comes to your ministry is sent as a gift and challenge from God – and God is holding you accountable to grow each one to their fullest potential.

As you set aside the secular shackles you’ve unwittingly placed on your Christian development program, you’ll lower the barriers to meaningful involvement in your cause while raising the bar for what you can expect from your ministry’s champions – all while having a lot more fun in fundraising!

Simply email us at cyc@dotheword.org and let us know what device you’ll be reading the book on (iPad, Nook, Kindle, etc.) and we’ll send the appropriate file.

The Best Gift You Can Give to Your Enemy

Why do we hate people the way we do?  We all have enemies.  For some, our enemies are those who have hurt or wronged us in some way.  For others, they are the ones who vote or worship differently than us.  Still for others, it is something else…something we can’t quite explain.

John Wesley said the reason why the rich do not have more compassion for the poor is that they spend little time around them and thus do not know much about them or how they live. So maybe we hate the people we do because, unlike God, we are threatened by them.

Maybe we hate them because we don’t see them very much and thus we can make assumptions about how and why they think and act the ways they do.

The truth is, we sometimes wish harm on their enemies. But in Luke 6:33-35, Jesus says:

“And if you do good to those who are good to you, what credit is that to you? Even sinners do that. And if you lend to those from whom you expect repayment, what credit is that to you? Even sinners lend to sinners, expecting to be repaid in full. But love your enemies, do good to them, and lend to them without expecting to get anything back. Then your reward will be great, and you will be children of the Most High, because he is kind to the ungrateful and wicked.”

Lend to your enemies without expecting anything in return??? That sounds crazy! But perhaps it is far more sensible than it first appears.

In Luke 12:34, Jesus says, “For where your wealth is stored, there also will your heart be” (WNT).

In John 3:16, the Bible says that God the Father invested all of his “wealth”-his only begotten son-in his enemies. He gave his son as a gift to his enemies without expecting anything in return. In fact, they killed the gift. But God raised that gift, his son Jesus, from the dead. He was not afraid of what his enemies could do to him.

When Jesus tells us in Luke 6:35, “Love your enemies, do good to them, and lend to them without expecting to get anything back,” he is not asking you to do something new.

Instead, he is asking you to mirror into the world-to your enemies and his-what he did, and to do so in his name. In this way, our enemies will come to see-and touch-his great love. Because the kind of love he is talking about is a long-term commitment, not a one-time act. That’s the difference between loaning money to your enemies and giving it to them.

Sometimes the best gifts we can give are the ones that tie us together with our enemies for a long period of time. That gives God time to work on their hearts…and ours.

When you loan your enemies money, you will become very prayerful for them! And this is what Jesus is advocating: Tie together your well-being with that of your enemies and his.

In this way you will never forget to passionately intercede for them and do good to them.
