End the Silence
In the meantime, I'm sure a majority of you have a few (or maybe a lot) of outdated, usable phones lying around, and it presents a wonderful opportunity to made a nice profit. In fact, ebay made an impressive offer of a $100 coupon if your cell phone doesn't sell. That's an amazing offer. It's hard to resist an offer like that.
On the other hand, there is something much more noble to do with your used phones.
Several co-operations, including Verizon and Dr. Phil's End the Silence, collect old cell phones to give to victims of domestic violence.
There are few things I find more noble than efforts to end domestic violence. There are fewer things that boil my blood more than a "man" who thinks he can bully and beat those weaker than he. Therefore, I urge my readers, believers and unbelievers alike, to do everything within their abilities to join forces against domestic violence.
Psalm 11:5 states, "The Lord examines both the righteous and the wicked. He hates those who love violence."
Also, chapter 3 in 1 Peter says, "In the same way, you husbands must give honor to your wives. Treat your wife with understanding as you live together. She may be weaker than you are, but she is your equal partner in God's gift of new life. Treat her as you should so your prayers will not be hindered."
I have been married to an amazing Christian man for three years, and I wouldn't trade those three years for anything. I have a husband who uplifts and respects me. I would never have married a man with whom I could not be a true equal partner. I can't even imagine having a relationship any other way.
My wish is that all women can understand and experience my marital joy.
Donate your phone. Save a life.
