I hope you’ve all been enjoying some fall weather lately – whether you’re north or south, there’s a definite change in the air. We’ve had to turn our heat on finally as the mornings and nights are quite cool. Already October is beginning to draw to a close – I can’t believe how quickly this month (and every month really) is passing. The next thing you know it will be Christmas!
Speaking of Christmas, this post contains some great ideas for gifts that are cute, fitting and for a purpose. Read on!
He has shown you, O man, what is good.
And what does the Lord require of you?
To act justly and to love mercy
and to walk humbly[ with your God. ~ Micah 6:8
What does the Lord require of us? To act justly, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with Him. It seems like a large mandate, but it is one that we can daily fulfill – in our pursuit of God through quiet time, our determination to love as he has loved us, and our decision not to turn a blind eye to the truth of what’s going on in the world.
There are so opportunities for justice to be served, for wrongs to be made right, and at times we can feel helpless, not knowing what we can possibly do. First of all, we can pray! God has given us a powerful tool to fight the enemy, to draw near to him, and to bless the lives of others when we turn to him in prayer. Don’t turn away from the needs that cross your path and the things God impresses on your heart. Pray!
Something else we can do is support the work of organizations who are actively working for justice in different situations. Sometimes a simple donation is enough, others a commitment as a prayer partner, and still more giving of our time to serve as we are able.
And then there are companies like She Does Justice who exist to take it a step further. You can not only give your support, but wear your support! Make what you buy make a difference in the lives of others we might not typically be able to touch.
At She Does Justice we have made it our mission to support organizations who are working to reach those in need, near and far. It doesn’t matter how big or small the organization, if we believe in its mission then we want to help support it. Each month we will spotlight an organization. At the end of the month we will write a check to that organization taken from the overall sales in our shop that month. Each month we will donate at least 10% of our gross profit to an organization to help further their mission. Check out our cause for this month on our blog!
Each month 10% is donated to an organization working to change lives. In October, purchases made will help young women from an orphanage in Rwanda learn to sew, to give back to their community in the form of a sustainable business and school lunch program.
No.41 is about empowering young women. Our goal is not to give them the world, but to show them that God has already given them everything they need to go out there and take it. When you join with us, you are truly changing the world FOR ONE.
I don’t know about you, but stories like these of women who went from having nothing to everything in Christ, and then using their gifts, talents and abilities to grow and give back to their community and are now in university certainly makes my heart happy.
Smell the sweet scent of soy wax, essential oil candles drifting through your home – and remember.
Wear your support with theMicah 6:8 bracelets and a reminder of Whom we serve.
Make a difference today. She Does Justice.
