Just got this AWESOME Christmas present from a friend. He’ll be mad that I opened it up before Christmas, but we needed coffee and I saw the coffee bean box and I couldn’t help myself. And I was right, COFFEE! But something lots better, too.
Here’s the note we found at the bottom of the box (edited from it’s original version for length—you don’t have all day):
"This Christmas… I’ve donated money to International Justice Mission. It’s an organization that recruits high-powered lawyers (not dinky ones who can’t get jobs) who are passionate for Christ to then call them to leave their successful practices and legally break up child prostitution rings as well as various other forms of human slavery around the world. We are all called to be on the mission of Christ to free this world from spiritual slavery as well as have Christ’s heart for justice. I hope you can see that this would be a more worthy cause to spend the resources God has given me, rather than just give those of us who are physically free more unnecessary things…"
He ended his letter with Isaiah 55: 2-3
"Why spend money on what is not bread,
and your labor on what does not satisfy?
Listen, listen to me, and eat what is good,
and your soul will delight in the richest of fare.
Give ear and come to me;
hear me, that your soul may live.
I will make an everlasting covenant with you,
my faithful love.”
Awesome present, right?
