What do we do when we have enough?

by Terry on September 25, 2019

Some years ago it was reported that the multi millionaire industrial magnate John D. Rockefeller, who had founded Standard Oil Company after being asked how much more money he needed to have enough, had replied that he needed just a little bit more.

Rockefeller strongly believed that his purpose in life was to make as much money as possible and then use it wisely to improve the lot of mankind However what was not often reported was that he spent the last forty years of his life dedicated to philanthropy in the fields of education and health attempting to help his fellow man to live a better life.

What we at SOR Mission believe is that we all need to live simpler lives so that our simplicity will help enable us to have extra resources to help others who need a hand up in life. Such as a small business loan for a single mother, Doris, attempting to help her family who is living in poverty because of no fault of her own or Maria whose house was collapsing around her because what she made selling tortillas, her only income, was not enough to rebuild her small wood house in which she and her handicapped daughter lived. These ladies were helped because someone like you gave of their means to reach out to give a hand up to these ladies.

Our mission statement directs us to connect human need with God’s resources. You are God’s resource as without you reaching out to those in need, that need will never be met.
