Man, i really don’t have anything to complain about. My family & i go through some pretty tough trials concerning money, and all that usual stuff. But some Pastor’s family is going through it much worse!
See here, i know about poverty, and how it feels to not have enough money for the day. But there was never a day where i had to sleep without food on my stomach, or walk home from school because my dad didn’t give me money. It never happened! And when we go through tough challenges, we become so discouraged and couldn’t think of any possible way for us to survive, when in reality we are far more blessed than we thought we are.
But here, there’s this Missionary/Pastor whose church that sent him doesn’t really do a thing to help him at all. And now, there have been way too many times when they would try to squeeze the money so they could have food for a day. And they’re faithful and good to the poor people that they serve, to the church that they minister in. Why does this happen to the faithful ones? Whose hearts are pure with love and intentions to bring these people to Christ? While those pastors, who compromise, and doesn’t even break a sweat sleeps comfortably in their homes? and get to drive a nice car? Why?
But God reminded me of what the Apostle Paul went through, what Jesus went through. How Jesus was persecuted, and how Paul lost so much into bringing the good news to the people, but still counted them nothing compared to the Glory of knowing and loving Christ. He reminded me that this Pastor may not have all the earthly blessings he deserves to have, but he and his family has a wonderful place in the heavens, they are storing up alot of heavenly treasures! That their greatest reward is Jesus Christ!
It amazes me how this family kept faithful. If you happen to read this, will you please pray for the Medina family. They’re really a nice bunch of people. Pray for God’s grace and provision over their lives, the thing that they are doing ain’t easy, and the challenges they face are difficult. But they have their hearts fixed on the wonderful love of Christ. Please lift them up in your prayers. <3
