What Does a Better World Look Like to You?

It is incredibly easy to get so caught up with our own problems that we neglect to notice the needs of others. Giving changes this. It makes us hopeful. It changes our perspective. It makes our problems seem manageable.

We live in an interconnected world with incredible possibility: We have an opportunity to bring goodness and peace to the lives of others. There is a better future ahead for all of humanity, if we make it possible.

People around the globe are in desperate need of our help. They’re suffering from issues outside of their control, but many that are changeable. When we walk alongside them, we can create opportunity out of these seemingly hopeless situations. We can find, and offer, solutions.

What if the future actually could look different than the trajectory humanity is currently on? What would you want it to look like?

I want to see love, peace, and hope. I desire to see poverty alleviated, so that people can live freely and with purpose—so that they can accomplish good for others in the world. I long for Jesus to become a major part of people’s lives, because I know the difference he has made in my life and the lives of others. I want to watch transformation in ethics and lifestyles occur. I want to see entire communities transformed.

I believe that we have the opportunities and capabilities today to make this happen. I believe that we can roll out a strategy for community development that doesn’t just change one part of a person’s life, but their whole life.

I think the world needs a new, better solution. I believe Jesus’ Economy is a major part of that solution.

Help us create a better future. Donate to Jesus’ Economy today.
