The word RISK carries so many negative connotations; words like fear, failure and humiliation all come to mind. But what about the other side of it? What about the experiences and opportunities we gain because we take risks?
Faithbox sees risk and reward in our own lives, but risk is central to the Gospel story. God gave up everything for us - even his own Son, Jesus Christ - at the risk that we would reject him. He was willing to offer us everything with no guarantee of getting anything back in return.
You may not consider yourself an avid risk-taker, but this monthly box is dedicated to get you to step out of your comfort zone, rely on your faith and take a little risk this month. Do something you've been scared to pull the trigger on and trust that God will be with you in the midst of it. He always is.
What is in the 2017 September Faithbox:
Ubuntu Made - People Made Products That Empower Communities LOVE BRACELET #loveisproject
Ubuntu Made is empowering communities and creating jobs in Kenya. We chose this name, meaning “I am because we are”, as it embodies our greatest core value and understanding that we are all connected. None of us can reach our full potential unless we are helping others reach theirs.
The LOVE Bracelets, hand-beaded by Ubuntu Made’s Maasai artisans, empower communities through financial independence & connect the maker to the wearer with a shared experience of love. LOVE Bracelets began the #loveisproject through a collaboration between Ubuntu Made and The Supply Change that became a widespread movement, expanding into large markets such as American Eagle and Whole Foods Market, increasing impact for 400 artisans in Kenya. **Purchase additional Love Bracelets
Living a better story by understanding your ‘Why’. Whiteboarding Your Why? book Ryan & Tami Canady
What started as a conversation in a living room has now grown into an international community of gatherings helping people understand their defining moments and discover their “Why.” Through individual sessions, small group gatherings, and even large events, the Canady’s have been able to help countless people find commonality with others, build connection, and know they are not alone in their experiences.
The truth is so many people feel stuck living lives of minimal significance and marginal impact. The daily routines of working, eating, and sleeping have overtaken the sense of purpose, meaning, and destiny we were each designed to have. Whiteboarding Your Why? is an invitation for you to begin exploring your story through an interactive approach that brings meaning, purpose, and fulfillment to your life and helps you become who God made you to be. **Purchase additional books
In almost every area of life, there are inherent risks. Some risks are greater than others, but they are risks nonetheless. Everyday we find ourselves faced with decisions we have to make involving some level of risk. Do we take the new job or not? Should I uproot my family and make a major life move? Do I commit wholeheartedly to that friendship or relationship?This month’s poster serves as a simple reminder (and a gentle nudge) that taking a risk might be the very thing you need to do.
