Receivers, Then Givers – Operation Christmas Child Weekly Countdown: 1

2015 OCC Countdown 1


How many weeks do we have to pack shoeboxes? Only 1!

While we’re putting final touches on and in our shoeboxes, it’s good to remember whose idea it is to serve.

It’s good to know that it isn’t just a religious project created by an impersonal god to drive us crazy or distract us with busy-ness.

Heart Call

It’s a heart call from the Father Above to His children – receivers, then givers – on this little, incredibly complex planet we call Earth.

Scroll over the verses below for Blue Letter Bible’s pop-up Bible helper

and encouragement from the Father Above:


Colossians 1:13-14

Colossians 3:17

Rest in knowing that as much as God cares for each shoebox recipient, He cares for you.

I need to be reminded of that.

Don’t you?
