Kingdom deposits make eternal investments.
Recently, I had a banking conversation with my daughter Bethany. We talked about making deposits into her account that will service her in the future. I was reminded that taking care of God’s kingdom is making life deposits into others lives. What we do now, definitely impacts the future!
What we do and what we say influences the kingdom of God. By showing the same love to those around you that God has shown and given you, you are making kingdom deposits. Never underestimate the act of a simple, loving decision. Simply lending a helping hand, speaking kindly to a sales attendant, or sharing your faith and experience of God’s love and grace to a coworker all makes a difference.
Live life on purpose.
In Matthew 6:33 (GWT), the Word says, “But first, be concerned about His kingdom and what has His approval. Then all these things will be provided for you.”
Let’s live kingdom minded, making deposits. Daily kingdom deposits make eternal investments.

Kim and I are very excited to share with you about the incredible mission we will be taking part of in Zambia and Zimbabwe, Africa. On September 22, we depart to serve and minister the good news of the saving truth of Jesus Christ and Biblical leadership principles. We are so honored to goto Africa!
First, we go to Lusaka, Zambia, to minister with Pastor Walker and Haley Shurz of Miracle Life Family Church (www.africaoutreach.net ). This church is the largest church in the nation of Zambia, with well over 3,000 in weekend attendance. We will teach leadership to their church staff, have a youth leadership seminar for the youth leaders, and preach to the church’s youth group.
Second, we will go and meet with missionaries, Steve and Dee Olivier of Life World Outreach (www.LifeWorldOutreach.com) that holds outdoor field crusades in Zimbabwe. I will assist Steve with a crusade in the Eastern region of Zimbabwe in the city of Mutare. I will preach a few nights of the 6-day crusade and we will also host a 3-day pastor and church leaders training conference.
We will be making an eternal impact and eternal investment in the lives of the precious people of Africa. We ask you to support us in two ways: first, and most importantly, in prayer and second, in finances. Prayerfully consider if you would like to give; and if you are unable to give at this time, please know we equally value your prayers.
If you feel led, please make out your check to: Finishline Ministry. In the memo of the check write: AFRICA. All donations are tax deductable. Mail to:
