Just a quick note to point out that I’m seriously considering putting all proceeds earned online from advertising (mostly in the form of referrals) toward obeying Matthew 25:31–46, particularly the part about giving to needy brethren.
I have already committed this month’s DIYthemes referral payout to a local food pantry; I hope it is just the beginning.
I’m posting this so that those who know me can help to hold me accountable to this commitment. I’m posting this because you are the ones who are allowing me to earn money online, and I want you to know that I am not receiving the money in vain. It will be going to cause with an eternal reward.
I submit that so long as there are hungry, thirsty, and otherwise needy, destitute people — even families (read: infants, children) — within America, we cannot call this “the most Christian nation on Earth.” By so doing, we take our Savior’s name in vain, mocking the sacrifice He gave for us.
He gave His life; have we not compassion enough to put an end to hunger where we are able?
It’s my intention to share and document all that gets done with the money earned here, both for your encouragement and to ensure you that the money is not being wasted. Look for the first such report sometime next week, Lord willing.
Thanks to all of you who have in your own ways made this ministry possible!
