For most companies that donate to non profit organizations, the concern over how best to help the needy is one that is taken very seriously. Whatever your religious denomination, there are a number of ways that your Christian business can make meaningful contributions to society, including using a Christian web host or regularly volunteering your time.

Blessed is he that considereth the poor: the LORD will deliver him in time of trouble. (Psalm 41:1)

Number One: Set a Better Example
The best way that we, as Christian companies, can help the needy is in showing them the compassion of Christ within us. It is through not only our words but our deeds and prayers that we are able to make the greatest impact on our communities and the world itself.

"The King will reply, 'I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.' (Matthew 25:40)

It is vital that companies that donate to non profit organizations not only endeavor to continue to make those contributions, but also to be an example for others. In donating to worthy causes, we are showing the love of Christ in not only our words, but in our actions as well.

Number Two: Local Ministry
And don’t forget to do good and to share with those in need. These are the sacrifices that please God. (Hebrews 13:16)

While there are good things to be said for having a Christian web hosting service and setting an example to other businesses, it is also important to pay attention to the poor of our own communities. One of the best places to start helping those in our communities is by doing a community needs assessment. Within each of our communities, there are people who are hungry, people in need. Being able to shift a good portion of our focus on those people will enable us as business owners to then reach out within our communities and make a big impact on the lives we are able to touch.

Number Three: Hunger Ministries
If there is a poor man among your brothers in any of the towns of the land that the LORD your God is giving you, do not be hardhearted or tightfisted toward your poor brother. (Deuteronomy 15:7)

For those that are starving or hungry, words do not mean very much. Being able to nourish their bodies, and that of their children is imperative. While our companies may donate to non profit organizations, we should also endeavor to give to more hunger ministries. Whether it is supporting a local Meals on Wheels program or giving to organizations such as the World Hunger Fund, this is a ministry of strong impact that cannot be overlooked.

Number Four: Elderly Ministries
Jesus said, “Come to me, all you that are weary and are carrying heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me; for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” (Matthew 11:28-29)

In so many of our communities, the elderly are left to be forgotten. We must not allow this community of those who should be respected and revered in their old age to go lost. Volunteer ministries for visiting the elderly and food programs geared at nourishing their bodies as well as their souls are important to ensuring that we are honoring our elders as the Bible commands us. There are several Christian web hosting companies that partner with local elder care groups for this purpose, and many of our companies could easily integrate community outreach programs for the elderly.

Number Five: Housing Ministries
Speak up and judge fairly; defend the rights of the poor and needy. (Proverbs 31:9)

Whether it is donating to a housing ministry or volunteering for organizations of a similar nature, contributing to housing ministries is a powerful way to deliver the message of Christ in a more meaningful way. In many communities, there are a number of organizations that help aid those who need utility assistance, home weatherization assistance and other blessings. Helping these organizations is a way to not only impact the lives of the families within the ministry but also the community at large as more affordable, adequate housing has a very positive impact on the community as a whole. With the rise in popularity for organizations like Habitat For Humanity, many companies that give to non profit organizations have a unique opportunity to get involved in housing ministries.
