Dream Big Dreams
You were created in the image of God and are never more godly than when you are dreaming. God is a dreamer and His nature is in you. That’s why you can look at something that appears to be nothing and believe in it. God wants you to realize those dreams. He’s the One who gave them to you. He wants you to know the desires of your heart as you delight in Him ( Psalm 37:4 ). Don’t ever put limits on what God can do. And don’t let your criminal record get in your way. Many of those coming out of prison lose hope of ever becoming successful. But CFTI can help you know success and significance by helping you find a right relationship with God. That’s what makes us different from our sister companies. CFTI offers hope! Our staff – many of them ex-offenders themselves – are dedicated to helping ex-offenders.
As a Michigan tax payer, one important question we need to be asking ourselves is; what role do I want to play in assisting ex-offenders becoming productive citizens in my community? Most people want to see a positive return on their money. Yet in Michigan, tax payers are footing the bill for an epidemic called Recidivism – ex-offenders returning to incarceration – at the rate of $34,000 per inmate, per year, paying over two billion dollars annually. Over 80% of those being released from prison return within two years. For those coming out of county jail, 8 out of 10 return within 24 hours. Michigan spends more on its prison system than on higher education, in return, creating a revolving door that sets ex-offenders up for failure. CFTI opens a door of opportunity to change; to change those statistics and to change lives – offering you an opportunity to invest your money in a more positive, productive manner called Rehabilitative Love.
“Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’ “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 25:37 thru 40 ) The question is: How well are you performing in this act of compassion? Jesus Himself is going to judge us, placing some of us on His right and some of us on His left. Which side will you be on? The choice is yours. It’s our prayer you will help support our ministry by making an on-line donation and then ask the Holy Spirit to bless what you give. The size of the contribution doesn’t matter. Its the size of your heart God measures.
