Acts 5:17 NIV:
"The elders who direct the affairs of the church well are worthy of double honor, especially those whose work is preaching and teaching."

Act 5:17 The Message:
"Give a bonus to leaders who do a good job, especially the ones who work hard at preaching and teaching."

OK, so how do we organize something for Mike here? He's doing a good job, working hard at teaching and preaching! He deserves a bonus.

Andrew--Thank you for putting this out in print--I've been thinking about this for a long time and didn't know how to do this, or even what to do. It also needs to be done so that Mike is not exposed to the "fringe" element that would try to shut him down and this site down.


Thanks Andrew & Ramona! I appreciate the thought on all of this, but honestly, so far I have not made a dime off this ministry and I hope to keep that streak going for as long as possible. :)

I have had others approach me via email on occasion too with an offer of an offering. My response to those emails and to anyone is that the best payment you could make to me is to sponsor a child through World Vision or to simply give an extra gift to some ministry / charity of your choice that serves the poor. That's all I need!

Thanks though for the thought on this!


You are truely a humble servant of God to not want monetary rewards for all the work you do. You have been very faithful in doing God's work by keeping this blog going for almost 4 years. With all the work and effort you have put into it, it would be hard to come up with a monetary value that would equal the time you must spend. God will have his reward for you in heaven. Until that time charitable giving is a great idea. My self, I donate to Compassion International and our local Pregnancy Resource Center, both great ministries. World Vision is another good one. Thanks again for maintaining this blog. Many lives are blessed and touched daily, which must be a reward in itself.

What a blessing your blog is! It's so nice to see someone writing about how we are to care for our parents and elderly relatives. My grandmother, who went to be with the Lord in 2000, and was my best friend; lived with my parents until the day she went home. We had hospice care for her, and the family was so blessed to take care of a woman who had always so selflessly cared for us. God gave Grandma grace and peace in those last months of her life, and she was truly never a burden to anyone. Our family couldn't have imagined not taking care of her when she was too physically weak to care for herself...I look forward to seeing Grandma in Heaven one day :)
