Self-Denial Jar for Missions

by Dec 6, 2021Sabbath School

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! One small church had a $1500 goal but in the end, they raised $4,203.63 for a young girl in the Philippines to have an operation and had money left to support the missionary!
