What Would You Do With $250,000?

I asked this question on Twitter the other day, and the response was INCREDIBLE!

    Tithe, finish paying off the house (it’s our LAST debt remaining and the balance isn’t much – WOOHOO), invest for both education and retirement, and set up a fund my wife and I could pull from for the different ministries we volunteer in.

    I would build a place for the Home less to go. This area has a lot of homeless people. Some by choice the others by bad situations and drugs. In this place I would have a way for the folks to earn a living and have a chance to learn a new skill for them to, in time, get back to a productive state.. Most do not want to be homeless. It is a cruel world and it is getting worse. One day Jesus will return and make all things right again. The needs in this area are great. Just remember, Jesus never asked the blind man that he made to see again “How much money do you have. He never asked the sick that he healed “How much money do you have?” No one can buy their way into heaven. Cash want get you there, only believing in Jesus and following his word will lead you toward that door.
