On Friday, April 2 at 10am I will host an international live broadcast to share a powerful message from God’s Word entitled, “God’s Gift of Opportunity”.
Some may say, “its easy for a white American man to preach about opportunity”.
Unfortunately, we live in a world where opportunity is unequal based on the color of skin, nationality, ethnicity, economic status, gender, etc. Half the battle is acknowledging that. The other half is doing something about it.
Fortunately, God gives opportunity equally and God expects his people to give opportunity equally.
I can’t control my brothers and sisters in Christ. I can only control myself. I will be honest about the disparity. I will encourage everyone to give opportunity equally. I will set the example. Three examples:
1. Our Board of Directors and staff are diverse with men and women leaders of color and nationalities. Our Indian partners are all Indian Nationals.
2. While most American money to the foreign mission field goes to white American missionaries serving abroad, the vast majority of GHI funds go to our indigenous brothers and sisters – Indian National leaders doing the Lord’s work in India.
3. Debt is a luxury most white Americans have no trouble acquiring but smart debt is extremely difficult for most people in India. At times Shelly and I have leveraged our debt to empower opportunity for leaders in India – without charging any interest. We see it as another form of God’s generosity through us.
If you are oppressed without equal opportunity I am truly sorry! I encourage you to refuse to resent. Fix your eyes on Jesus not man. Trust God who gives equal opportunity. Control yourself to give equal opportunity to all.
We can’t control what we receive from others. We can only control what we give to others. The only proper response to God’s generosity is generosity.
Opportunity is a gift from God.
Please pray for this message and join the live broadcast on April 2.
What else needs to be said about equal opportunity in an unequal world?
