ALEXANDRIA, La. (LBF) – Christians are motivated to meet the needs of family members because of our love and loyalty to them. Many have minor children who are understandably heavily dependent on parents for their needs to be met. There are others who have parents depending upon their children because of unforeseen circumstances in life. Some have adult children who have special needs and are financially dependent upon their parents. Others are the legal guardians of grandchildren because of challenging circumstances and those grandchildren are financially dependent upon their grandparents. Life seems to have some unusual circumstances placed before us occasionally. What most individuals have in common is the motivation to step-up and help family members in times of need.
The above provides some real life circumstances that occur in the lives of many. There are charitable tools to help address some of these life circumstances as well as impacting the Kingdom one day. Consider the significance of that last statement. You have the ability to meet the needs of family as well as impacting the Kingdom one day!
