WILLS POINT, TX – Gospel for Asia (GFA) –Discussing Bindal and his family in the midst of the struggles of poverty, and their search for true blessing, forgiveness and freedom.
Bindal watched as his parents bought another animal sacrifice for an annual festival. His heart was troubled, because he knew their money was limited. Bindal knew the significance of these blessings, but he worried for his parents’ financial security. He wondered if there was a way out of this life.
A Life of No Peace
Bindal lived with his parents, who were farmers by trade. They had no savings, yet it did nothing to stop Bindal’s parents from spending on ceremonial rituals. Every year this went on, with more and more money used for sacrifices.
Bindal, being a dutiful son, participated in these ceremonies, but they only increased the concern in his heart. If his parents continued to spend money constantly, there would be none left. They would be destitute, the very thing they wanted to avoid. The young man began to think: Is there a way to somehow break this cycle? Is there someone who can bless and forgive without us having to buy a sacrifice? Bindal wracked his brain for an answer, but to no avail. It seemed he and his family would continue in this cycle.
