PRAYING FOR BIBLES
Monday, July 15, 2019
Matthew 16:24 Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. [Repeated 3 more times in God’s Word: Mk.8:34; 10:21; Lk.9:23]
International tariff wars aim at products and inadvertently target others, primarily not the upper class but the common citizen. This present taxing battle may seriously effect the free distribution of God’s Word to inmates and others. How so?
Yearly 150, 000, 000 or more Bibles are printed and bound inexpensively in China, millions of which come to the USA, a considerable portion of which are distributed charitably. Tariffs will make it unprofitable for some Chinese companies and the surviving manufacturers will simply increase their prices passing the tariff expense on to consumers. Not only will USA donors have to come up with more money, there will likely be a shortage of Bibles because of limiting printings plus some Chinese businessmen will opt for the ease of selling to tariff free countries.
Please consider and pray for this challenging dilemma.
