It’s billed as the “feel-good show of the season.” It’s ABC’s Secret Millionaire. Does ABC think we need to feel better? If so, why?
Our culture tells us we should do things that make us feel better about ourselves. However, it’s not about us. It’s about God and what He wants us to do.
Let me go back to Secret Millionaire. The show takes millionaires out of their regular worlds and put them undercover as volunteers for several charities, usually ones that serve areas of great need and poverty. Ultimately, these millionaires reveal their identities and donate some of their money to impact the causes they are most passionate about.
There are several points of application for us in regard to our stewardship of the resources God has entrusted to us. In relationship to the tremendous needs of the world today, many of us are secret millionaires. He wants us to stop hiding in the dark, step into the light, and start to eternally impact the causes we are passionate about.
What are you passionate about? For many of you, it is Bible translation. Consider how God wants you to use the assets He has entrusted to you to complete the task of Bible translation in this generation.
I guarantee you: Doing so will bring you great joy.
