If I give nothing . . . I cast a vote in favor of closing my church.
If I give only to local support . . . I vote to stop missionary activity in this hour of great world need.
If I give grudgingly . . . I shall find no joy, nor receive the blessing of the Lord.
If I give proportionately . . . I shall give something, even if of necessity, mine must be small.
If I give systematically . . . I make it possible for my church to plan in advance and make it easier for myself.
If I give sacrificially . . . I shall testify to the high value I place upon Christ and the church in ministering to the physical and spiritual needs of suffering humanity.
