This is a powerful quote from Lottie Moon that Tracy read in her quiet time this morning. I hope it challenges you like it challenged me.
“I wonder how many of us really believe that ‘it is more blessed to give than to recieve’? A [person] who accepts that statement of our Lord Jesus Christ as a fact, and not as impractical idealism, will make giving a principle of [their] life. [They] will lay aside sacredly not less than one-tenth of [their] income or earnings as the Lord’s money, which [they] would no more dare to touch for personal use than [they] would steal. How many there are among [us]….who imagine that because Jesus paid it all, they need pay nothing, forgetting that the prime object of their salvation was that they should follow in the footsteps of Jesus Christ in bringing back a lost world to God.”
