As you are well aware, television costs a lot of money. A typical show on broadcast television costs $1 million per episode. Of course, at A Rood Awakening! International, we are able to do it on far less than that — but it still takes a large sum of money.
I just returned from a road trip in which I taught at 5 of our Aviv Fellowships. So many times, at these home get-togethers, I had children come up to me with a donation they had been saving up to give to the ministry. Sometimes $10, $5 or some other small amount. (In fact, we get envelopes from adults, too, that send in $2 faithfully every month, because it’s all they have to give.)
When these children give me their carefully saved donation, I keep it in my desk drawer and I have their name on it. I still have dollar bills from small kids who are now teenagers. I don’t spend that money because it reminds me that every dollar counts, every cent counts. When I see this sacrifice of theirs, no matter how little, I consider it a very precious thing.
Every donation YOU give is precious, too. Your donation is a spiritual sacrifice that goes on an altar before the throne of the Almighty himself. When you decide to give of your increase, to sacrifice a portion of what he has given you, you are putting it on the altar to him and you are asking him to accept it as a gift.
It’s not the dollar amount of the gift, it’s the sacrifice. It’s the fact that you have said to the Almighty, “this is yours, do with it what you want.” When we receive a sacrifice like that at A Rood Awakening! International, we treat it with respect because it is a gift given to the Almighty.
As you have freely received from the broadcast teachings of this ministry, we are asking you to give back, in any amount. We are doing the best we can with what we have, and we will continue to do the best we can with everything you give.
Your donations keep Michael Rood on the air!
