Giving

Христианский дар

2 Korinfyanam 9: 6–7 Vot chto ya govoryu, tot, kto seyet skupo  takzhe budet pozhinat’ nemnogo, i tot, kto obil’no seyet, takzhe pozhnet obil’no. Kazhdyy dolzhen delat’ tak, kak on opredelil v svoyem serdtse, ne stesnyayas’ ili ne prinuzhdayas’, potomu chto Bog lyubit zhizneradostnogo dayushchego.

Mnogiye iz nas tak ili inache vnesli svoy vklad v organizatsiyu. My pomogli vyrastit’ organizatsii iz vtorostepennykh operatsiy vo vsemirnuyu imperiyu. Takim obrazom, vse, chto my vlozhili v eti organizatsii lyubymi sposobami, seychas nakhoditsya v protsesse pogasheniya pered obshchestvom v razlichnykh formakh. Teper’ davayte podumayem, k chemu by privelo blagosloveniye, yesli by my finansirovali missiyu Tserkvi Khristovoy.

Cherez etikh sluzhiteley i missionerov my pomogayem domam prestarelykh, priyutam, domam prestarelykh i t. D. My finansiruyem resursy dlya yevangelizatsii i uchenichestva. Poetomu my prezhde vsego vkladyvayem sredstva v dukhovnoye i vechnoye blagopoluchiye lyudey vsekh natsiy, plemen, rodov i yazykov. Nashi investitsii v rabotu lorda menyayut doma, otnosheniya, strany i dazhe sud’bu mnogikh dush.

YA prosmatrival detali razlichnykh missionerskikh saytov i blogov i dumal o tom, kogda ya natknulsya na stranitsu, na kotoroy bylo napisano: «V 1987 godu Chet Atkins i Margaret Archer napisali pesnyu, kotoruyu spela zvezda kantri Rey Stivens, kotoraya otchasti poshla: Yesli on vernetsya zavtra, ya by khotel koye-chto uznat’. Budet li Iisus nosit’ Rolex na svoyem teleshou?

Drugoy sluchay, kogda kto-to prosit sobraniye dat’ 4-y chastnyy samolet. Segodnya delo religii – eto luchsheye delo, i mnogiye mogut poverit’, chto ya tozhe na tom zhe puti.Mnogo let nazad, kogda ya byl podrostkom i byl chlenom Molodezhnogo bratstva Tserkvi Armii Spaseniya, ya poluchil vozmozhnost’ provodit’ voskresnuyu messu, eto bylo chast’yu molodezhnogo bratstva, yezhegodno provodimogo Tserkov’yu Armii Spaseniya v Severnoy Indii, gde Vse voskresnoye obshcheniye na odno voskresen’ye bylo otvetstvennost’yu molodezhi. YA pomnyu, chto vylozhilsya nailuchshim obrazom, tak kak byl khorosh v publichnykh vystupleniyakh. Etot den’ zastavil menya zadumat’sya, i odnazhdy ya podumal stat’ propovednikom, v moyem mozgu byla bor’ba, potomu chto odna chast’ govorila, chto propovednik, a drugaya – byt’ biznesmenom. 

Nakonets, proshlo vremya, i ya stal professionalom v oblasti bankovskogo dela i finansov, no u menya voznikla iskra v tom, chto kogda-nibud’ ya sdelayu chto-to i stanu primerom dlya khristianskoy zhizni i zhizni.  

Segodnya televizionnyye shou religioznogo biznesa dali plokhoye imya khristianskoy blagotvoritel’nosti. Nam nuzhno chetko ponimat’, chto Pisaniye uchit o pozhertvovaniyakh. Bog khochet, chtoby my shchedro zhertvovali, poskol’ku On protsvetal. Davat’ – eto privilegiya i otvetstvennost’ dlya tekh, kto poluchil ot Boga dar vechnoy zhizni. Darit’ dolzhno byt’ blagodarstvennym prinosheniyem Bogu. My dolzhny zhelat’ videt’ Boga proslavlennym. Bog proslavlyayetsya, kogda my dayem po pravil’nym motivam i pravil’nym obrazom. Vsegda prosite Boga dat’ vam den’gi, chtoby dat’ i ubedites’, chto vy dayete. 

Tak chto moi druz’ya dumayut ob etom, yesli vasha uchetnaya zapis’ na nebesakh skudna, vy dolzhny shchedro podumat’, gde nakhoditsya vashe sokrovishche i gde yego khranit’, i nayti yego. 

Amin’ 

V yego slave
