Researching ministries of worthy causes ---
Mat 10:11-12 And into whatever city or village you enter, inquire who within it is worthy. And there abide until you go away from there. And when you come into a house, greet it.
Mat 10:13 And if the house is worthy, let your peace come on it. But if it is not worthy, let your peace return to you.
Mat 10:14 And whoever shall not receive you, nor hear your words, when you depart out of that house or city, Shake off the dust of your feet.
How to determine if a ministry is worthy of your contributions.
What is the lifestyle of the leaders?
Do they live extravagant lives?
Do they live in an extravagant home a home better than most?
Are they committed to their family and spouse and live holy lives?
Is their main topic giving to ME (their ministry)?
Is most of your contribution going to spread the Gospel of Jesus
With a small percentage for running expenses?
Important -- is there Strife and division among the leaders and those working with them.
Editorial: I received information that there was strife in the ministry "Feed the Children." It was one of my pet ministries. I stopped my bill pay immediately.
Thank you for allowing me to make a Joyful Noise! Hazel
