This month, the Christian Life Commission is set to distribute funds to 117 ministries throughout the state of Texas and more than 67 international ones through the Texas Baptist Hunger Offering. That is a reflection of the generosity of Texas Baptists, an indication about the contents of their hearts.
Feeding people who don't have enough to eat and helping others to climb out of poverty is part of our obedience to Jesus' command to love our neighbors as ourselves. Doing so in a way that maximizes the support we can offer to ministries working with hungry people is a Christian responsibility.
Financial support through the Hunger Offering is used by some of the Christian community's most compassionate, brightest idea makers today. From collection plate to places like Pradesh, India, contributions through this support system fortify efforts against hunger in many forms. Ours is an approach to support our brothers and sisters doing good work without removing any money for administrative costs on our end.Today, we're two weeks into a new year. Texas Baptists are committed to taking the gospel seriously and believe our resources should do the same.
