Winter has arrived in Israel. The days are shorter and the nights are colder. Everyone is bundling up; everyone that is, except a family in financial crisis.
One particular growing family, who we have been counseling with for an extended period of time, recently informed us of their need for warm, winter clothing. The children were without weather appropriate coats and outfits and the struggling family was unable to afford the much needed missing articles. How could we go on our way feeling warm and well-dressed while knowing the children of this family were suffering due to a lack of sufficient income?
The staff of CBN Israel took action and personally went out to buy multiple outfits and jackets for each of the children, including the newborn. When the staff brought these gifts to the mother, she was absolutely in shock. She exclaimed,
“Wow! I am so amazed and thankful that someone would do this for us!”
What a joy it is to be able to bless those in need around us. Isn’t it true that when we are able to bless someone else, it is as if we ourselves received a gift? We do to others what we would want others to do for us. The Bible says:
“If a brother or sister is naked and destitute of daily food, and one of you says to them, “Depart in peace, be warmed and filled,” but you do not give them the things which are needed for the body, what does it profit?” – James 2:15-16
This is the heart of CBN Israel. We truly desire to be used by God to comfort those who mourn in Zion and to help lift their burdens in whatever way we are able. If you would like to give towards families in financial crisis, donate now.
God bless you.
