Lessons in Giving

How involved are you with missions? How involved is your church? You have four choices:

1) You can do nothing for missions. That's your vote to close down the gospel outreach around the world. It is your voice saying to the millions who've never heard about Jesus, "Tough, pal-guess you should have been born in America." That is what you say when you give nothing.

2) You can give less than last year. That's your vote to pull back, to do less than ever for global evangelization. To shut down some missions stations and recall some missionaries. To close down feeding stations.

3) You can give what you gave last year. By that you are saying, "Let's just hold the fort. Status quo!" I always thought the old song "Hold the Fort" was a silly song. We ought to be singing "STORM the Fort." Take the offense! By doing just what you did last year, you're holding the fort. Nothing gained there.

4) You can give MORE than you did last year and DO more than you did last year. By that, you're saying: "Let's be aggressive here! Let's really obey what God told us to do, and let's do it with all our hearts!"
