Million Dollar Yachts
you believe the money for yachts
is a blessing from God.
Well, before spending it on million dollar yachts or multi-million dollar yachts, let alone the several hundred
million dollar mega-yachts like Paul Allen's Octopus (right), consider this:
for $2, one Bible can reach a country where they are banned, and every Bible that
reaches such a place results on average in 3 new Christians (source
For the price of a quarter million dollar yacht, such a place can receive 125,000 Bibles
and 475,000 souls saved. For the price of a million dollar yacht, 500,000 Bibles can reach it and
1,500,000 souls saved.
The number rises to 15 millio

gigayacht, 250,000,000 Bibles can reach the lost and 750,000,000 souls - over 10% of the earth's
entire population - can be saved!

floating toy so that you can lounge around in the middle of the ocean while millions of
Christians and those who want to know about Christ around the world are without Bibles?
If you truly can't do without a ya
why not pick a small one and invest the rest of your money (really God's
money that He entrusted to you) in eternity? Let's Remember Jesus' command:
"Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where
moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal; but lay up for
yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and
where thieves do not break in and steal."
Jesus also warned:
"And that servant who knew his master’s will, and did
not prepare himself or do according to his will, shall be beaten with many
stripes. But he who did not know, yet committed things deserving of stripes,
shall be beaten with few. For everyone to whom much is given, from him much
will be required; and to whom much has been committed, of him they will ask
