Many "Littles" Make a Lot
 

As we enter a new year, we at ICR are reminded of the debt of love we owe those of you who make this ministry possible. Whether it be in the time spent before the Throne of Grace or partnering with us financially (or both), we are truly thankful for each one of you.

The lives changed during these past thirty years and those who will come to know God as their Father, are rich treasures deposited into the heavenly account of each one of you. We thank our gracious Lord for prompting you to be a partner with us; we thank you for responding to His prompting.

If you are not yet part of our team, it may be that you are reluctant to send us "too small" a gift. I have tended to rationalize in the past that . . . "unless I can commit to significant monthly giving, I won't give at all." Let me share how the Lord has challenged me in that regard—it has come from two fronts:

First, Pride. Well concealed pride hasn't allowed me to write a check for less than the level I have wanted to give as a donor. I have covered my pride by rationalizing, "What good would such a small amount do, anyway?"

Second, Compounding. I was astounded when I examined ICR's situation. Allow me to share a couple of examples.

Those of you who have requested our material and are not yet part of our financial team, please know that if only 10% of you were to give $10 per month, the Lord would use you to provide almost one and one- half million dollars ($1,416,000 to be exact) by the end of 2001. If every one who receives Acts & Facts and is not currently giving were able to give just $5.00 per month (we do understand that some are not), our resources available to do the Lord's work would more than double! Many "littles" make a lot!!

As you make your plans for 2001, will you prayerfully consider whether our Lord would have you join us? Your help will make a difference!

All of us at ICR are so very grateful to the Lord for His provision. We thank Him and know that He directs it to us through those of you for whom He provides abundantly—some from modest means, others from major; but, all as a sacrifice unto for the furtherance of His work here at the Institute! Thank you!
