In England, in the last generation, Robert Arthington was a shining example of Christian stewardship.
He lived in a single room, cooked his own meals, and shared his friendship with students who were in need. Yet he gave to Christian missions more than $25,000,000 during his lifetime.
After his death these words were found on a slip of paper: "Gladly would I make the floor my bed, and a box my chair, and another box my table rather than that men should perish for want of the knowledge of Christ." – (Cyclopedia of Bible Illustrations)
Can we imitate him to a little extent?
2Co 8:3 (CEV): “They gave as much as they could afford and even more, simply because they wanted to.”
“There is nothing wrong with men possessing riches. The wrong comes when riches possess men.” - Billy Graham.
''If you give what you do not need, it is not giving.'' - Mother Teresa.
Shall we at least give what we do not need, to start with?
