Brown Bag 4 Hope

October 10, 2013

Do you work outside the home? If so, do you take your lunch or eat out? Way back 7 years ago when my husband got his first “real” job, he started taking his lunch to work because we just couldn’t afford it any other way. Fast forward to now and he still takes his lunch every single day. That habit has helped us save thousands of dollars over the years and even if we have an excess of money someday (What would that even look like? Ha!) He will still take his lunch. I’m grateful that I have a husband who loves leftovers and pbj. Seriously, there were times he ate a pbj every single day and has never once complained. He even claims he could eat one every day without complaint. I love him so :)

You can imagine how much I loved this link from Show Hope  (a fantastic organization taking care of orphans around the world) on twitter this morning.

I think of this scripture found in James 1:27: “Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.”

Even if you don’t take part in the sponsorship, aren’t these numbers startling?

Saving that much by bringing your lunch JUST ONCE A WEEK! What are you waiting for? Start saving! And if the Lord leads you, take that extra money and make a difference through Show Hope.
