“God cares for the weak and the needy. …We should identify with God’s attitude. His work is not done until we care for the needs of the poor.”
(Commentary on Psalm 12:5, in the Life Application Study Bible)
Christ has a passionate heart for those who are marginalized, oppressed, and victimized. With this in mind, I wanted to highlight and bring into focus different charities that help those being oppressed and displaced in Northern Nigeria. Please, do not give out of obligation or burden; if you do feel led to give to one of these charities, please let me know so that I can observe how helpful this resource is to readers. You can find the link here.
As always, thanks again for all your support, and most importantly, prayers!!!

Do you know Jesus?
When speaking about how we should be generous, I think it is important to not fill people with a sense of religiosity or obligation; after all, the Bible even says we should not give under compulsion, but what the Believer decides in their hearts to give (2 Corinthians 9:7).
When keeping in mind the principle of giving, it is also important (much more so) to remember what we have been given, through Jesus giving His Life for us. Learn more about how Jesus gave His Life, and what it means for you, here.
