The Greatest Of These
“So now faith, hope, & love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love.” 1 Corinthians 13:13
We are counting down the days to when we will load up the girls in the VW bus and bring them to their new school. This will be the best school these girls have ever attended. Not only will they have teachers who love their jobs and are committed to giving their students a quality education, but ones who love them and teach them about Jesus. This will be a huge contrast to the public schools these girls are coming from where a teacher may not show up on any given day. Or if the teacher is present, there may not be much teaching going on.
Don’t get me wrong, not all teachers who work for the public schools are unqualified and unreliable. I have personally met some very good public school teachers in Brazil who take their work seriously and are doing a great job. But the hard truth is that they are in the minority when it comes to the Brazilian public school system.
If you are considering supporting our cause to give these children a private education, please know that it is much more than just that. You are giving these girls an opportunity to receive faith in a God who loves them and sent his Son to die for their sins. You are giving these girls hope that they can become more than a single mom who struggles to take care of herself, much less her children. You are giving these girls love like they have never known. So if you give to Love Rescues you’re not just giving a private education — you’re giving the “greatest of these” to the “least of these.”
“The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’” — Matthew 25:40
