Mission works of The Family International (TFI) members around the world are typically operated by volunteers who donate their time and resources. The specific sources of income for mission works of TFI members vary. Many rely largely on the material and financial support of helpful individuals and businesses, which generously sponsor local projects. Members may also subsidize their mission works through the distribution of inspirational and educational books and audio-video productions. The Family International’s volunteer efforts would not be possible without the help of those who generously donate goods and financial support.
There is not one of God’s children who cannot afford to give something to His Work! You may think you can’t afford to give, or you may not be able to give a lot at first, but God blesses everybody that gives, and if you’re not rich, that’s all the more reason you ought to give so the Lord can bless you and help you to have more!
King David once said, “I will not give unto the Lord that which hath cost me nothing!” (2 Samuel 24:24) It doesn’t really count until it costs you something to give, and you are really sacrificing to give, and when you can say, “The love of Christ constraineth me!” (2 Corinthians 5:14)
Remember the little widow who gave her last two mites? When Jesus saw it, He said that she had given even more than the rich, who had only cast in a little of their abundance! Although the smallest of all coins, only part of a penny, it was all she had and the Lord gave her more credit than He did them, by indicating that she had given more than they, because she had given all she had–even more than it seemed she should!–And the Lord honoured her for it! (Mark 12:42-44)
How much has it cost you? Does it hurt? Are you really giving sacrificially to God and His work?
