North Texas Giving Day Money Is NOT The Root Of All Evil
(To read this blog with some
great pictures added click here) If there’s a list somewhere of
most misquoted quotes, then “Money is the root of all evil” has to be somewhere
close to the top. But that’s not what
was actually said. The real and true
quote is “For the love of money is a root
of all kinds of evil…”Money itself
is not bad. It’s an unhealthy focus or
obsession with money and the things money can buy that gets us into trouble.
North Texas Giving Dayis a
prime time to prove that a lot of good can be accomplished by money when it’s used
for higher purposes than increasing account balances or acquiring more things
and stuff. There are hundreds of
charities in North Texas accomplishing so much good right now, right in our own
communities. Do your research, pick one
(or more), and help them out. Today’s
the day to celebrate what North Texas Charities are doing and a little bit (or
a lot) of your
money can enable them to do even more of it.

Act Beyond is on a mission to
catalyze church planting movements among the world’s unreached people groups.
In keeping with that mission, we regularly hold discipleship training courses

effectively execute their own mission as a part of the Great Commission.
Through this training, local believers are equipped to start discipleship
groups in their own neighborhoods while also praying for our work

or not you’re familiar with the story of Joni Eareckson Tada who broke her neck
in a diving accident at age 17 which resulted in quadriplegia, you’ll be
inspired by the after shocks of that tragedy-turned-triumph. Forty-seven years later Joni is still going
strong (she’s one of the longest living quadriplegics who has also survived
breast cancer) and heads the amazing Joni and Friends International Disability
Center located in Southern California.
But wait! There’s an office right
here in North Texas that you can donate to that does a lot of good for families
affected by disability including a 1 week Family
Retreat camp experience for the whole family.To give to Joni and Friends Texas click here.

is centuries old. Many would attribute it to Jesus, who arguably inspired it. But
the person who actually penned those words was the Apostle Paul as he was
writing to his much loved apprentice and friend, Timothy. You can read the full quote hereor search
the scriptures for I Timothy 6:10.
