A self-denial jar is a jar, box, or piggy bank that you put money in, that you would have spent on yourself or something that is unnecessary save it for a mission project.
- Instead of buying that snickers bar put the money in your self-denial jar.
- If you receive a gift you don’t need, return, or sell it and put the funds in your jar.
- Instead of going through the drive through for supper put the money in the jar and eat what you have at home.
- Dedicate a portion of all unexpected money to the mission.
- Skip the carwash for a month and put the money in the self-denial jar.
You get the idea! I bet you are thinking, “Will these few dollars actually amount to anything worthwhile?” and the answer is yes!
