30 Seconds or Eternity

I heard just yesterday that a 30 second ad in this year's Super Bowl will cost 4 million dollars! That is $4,000,000. Wow! The money advertisers will pay, and the things they will do on those ads, to get at least a :30 slice of probably the year's most watched TV event. Amazing.

It saddens me though to know for a fact people are dying of hunger in many places in the world. My...what I could do for in serving God with $4,000,000! Think of the people who could simply eat normal meals (like we do) every day.

Add to that, the fact that many folks in our country will gather around their big screens this year to not only watch the Super Bowl, but to celebrate the Super Bowl. Much money will be spent on beer, soda, pizza, hot wings, nacho chips and salsa, and all sorts of edible Super Bowl celebration creations. Churches even have special Super Bowl gatherings.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with the American way of celebrating the Super Bowl. But do something for me (if you will). Consider making a donation to our ministry that will go directly to improving the quality of life just a bit for some precious folks in Honduras. I will be personally in contact with some awesome people next month as I travel to Honduras in an effort to spread the love of Jesus. $5 or $10 or even $15 would be greatly appreciated. The cost is nothing compared to what some folks will spend for a Super Bowl party. Do you realize that 5 months down the road, you will struggle to remember who even won the game! But a donation to improve the quality of life for a child in Honduras will be remember for life!
