Â· Americans spent more on dog food last year, than they did to send the gospel around the world.
Â· Americans spend hundreds of dollars a month more on luxuries, than they do for missions.
How much shall I give?
1. If I refuse to give anything to missions this year, I practically cast a ballot in favor of the recall of every missionary.
2. If I give less than heretofore I favor reduction of the missionary forces proportionate to my reduced contribution.
3. If I give the same as formerly, I favor holding the ground already won; but I oppose any forward movement. My song is “Hold the Fort,” forgetting that the Lord never intended His army to take refuge in a fort. All his soldiers are commanded to “Go!”
4. If I increase my offering beyond former years, then I favor an advance movement in the conquest of new territory for Christ.
