Today’s offering will be divided between two important ministries in North America.


Part of the offering is for Adventist Chaplaincy Ministries. This ministry supports Adventist chaplains who provide spiritual care outside the familiar walls of the church. Their parishes are found on educational campuses, prisons, hospitals, among military troops, in the workplace, and the local community. They minister to people of all faiths or of no faith. More than 500 Adventist chaplains work in all types of settings across the North American Division. This ministry also provides a free-of-charge quarterly publication, For God and Country, to uniformed service personnel. Also, a helpful website, www.adventistsinuniform.org., will be of special interest to fire and rescue personnel, veterans, military personnel, and law enforcement officers.


The other part of the offering is for Refugee Ministries. North America is the destination for refugees from many parts of the world. In fact, many church members in the countries that make up North America are immigrants. The offering received will be used to offer programs for refugees.


Thank you for returning God’s tithe and the support of today’s offering.

Génesis 12:1 nos dice que “Jehová había dicho a Abram: ‘Vete de tu tierra, de tu parentela y de la casa de tu padre, a la tierra que te mostraré’”.


El llamado al patriarca Abraham fue un llamado a dejarlo todo para seguir el camino de Dios. Dios le pide que abandone su país, deje su parentela, y salga de la casa de sus padres. Dios aun le pidió que se apartara de su sobrino Lot, y luego aun de su propio hijo Ismael. Abraham abandona todo con el objetivo de seguir completamente la voluntad de Dios.


Nuestros diezmos y ofrendas expresan que lo hemos abandonado todo por amor a Dios. Simbolizan nuestra entrega completa a Dios. Dios nos pide una entrega total. Me pregunto si he entregado el ciento por ciento de mi vida a Dios; si lo he hecho, no tendré ningún problema en devolver el diez por ciento de las finanzas que le pertenecen. Mientras los diáconos recogen los diezmos y ofrendas, lo invito a meditar en lo que significan sus finanzas, y a entregar todo a Dios con gozo.
