At a recent Desiring God board meeting we reviewed the following: last year we asked God for 29.5 million visits to the website. He gave 35.7 million. At that time we debated at some length whether we should ask for a 20% increase, and he gave us a 45% increase.

Good News, Bad News

Published by: Sam Crabtree
December 23, 2014

Bad news – Billions of people are not flourishing, but living on less than $2 per day.

Good news – Since 2000, almost a billion have moved out of desperate poverty.

Surprising news – That advance did not come from charity and aid, but from business and trade.

Unfortunate news – Well-meaning people of faith are generally not engaged in helping the poor flourish by generating robust economies.

Other news – Over 60% of the world’s poor are not urban dwellers, but subsistence farmers.

Gypsy Smith (1860–1947) was a British evangelist who made an estimated 45 ocean crossings and was invited to the White House by two presidents. When asked how to bring about revival he gave these instructions: 

1.     Take a piece of chalk into your bedroom and close the door.

2.     Draw on the floor a circle large enough to kneel in.

3.     Kneel.
