Lately, all of the economic news has been about recession and how we might try to spend our way out of it. Year-end charitable giving in the US was down in 2007, as was all giving for the year as a percentage of income. Could it be that the recession is a form of reaping sparingly after sowing sparingly?
The first and last to suffer in a recession are the people who were poor to begin with. Now is the time to increase our giving to those in need. We would like to expand the services that The King’s Jubilee offers; especially helping those who are transitioning off the street and helping those who are only hanging onto their homes by a thread. We can only do this with additional funding. We cannot expect God to bless us, if we do not bless the “least of these”.
