Those in Need
Elihu Books desires to
be a resource to help others in as many ways as possible. We will
do everything we can to provide helpful educational materials
online for free, and where appropriate we will give our publications
and videos freely to those who are truly in need. If you have
little means, meaning you are not in a position to pay for books
or for videos of any kind without putting your and your family’s
financial circumstance at risk, contact us at InNeed@elihubooks.com.
Tell us what you are interested in and a little bit about yourself,
about your circumstances, and how we can help you. To the extent
that we can do so, we will.
It is our firm belief that one of the best ways
to “put on Christ” (Galatians 3:27) is to “practice
giving” (Luke 6:38) and to spend time aiding the poor, the
lowly, and “to look after orphans and widows in their tribulation”
(Psalm 41:1; Romans 15:26-27; Galatians 2:10; James 1:27). Doing
good for those in need is nowhere limited in the New Testament
to those who are related to us only by our Christian faith. We
are also taught to help those who are not related to us in the
faith, for example, by Jesus in the account of the neighborly
Samaritan in Luke 10:29-37 and as taught by Paul in Galatians
But all too often people ask, “Where can
I go to help those in need, like Jesus did?” Unfortunately,
it is not difficult to find places where people are genuinely
in need. Children are without families; there are widows without
support; the poor are often hungry and without clothing; the elderly
may be lonely or infirm; and many are in difficult circumstances
that can be positively impacted by personal contact, appropriate
donations and assistance, or by sharing some of our time and resources.
Elihu Books encourages people to seek out opportunities to help
those in need in these and in other ways.
While we intend to do our best individually and
as a company to help arrange for a variety of opportunities to
help those in need, we hope to give as many people as possible
a motivation to do so on their own, or with others, by considering
what opportunities may exist locally for you to help those in
need. A good resource to consider for just such opportunities
Volunteer Family. If you go to the Who
to Help? page you will find specific places in your
area where you can help a variety of people who are in need. Elihu
Books has no affiliation with The Volunteer Family. We simply
like some of the ways they make it possible for each of us to
positively impact the lives of others.
If you have any suggestions about how we
can better help those in need, or if you know of groups like The
Volunteer Family that we might highlight here on our site or make
a part of our Christian efforts, please let us know by emailing
us at Suggestions@elihubooks.com.
