How much shall I give for world missions?

by Oswald J. Smith

If I refuse to give anything to missions this year, I practically cast a ballot in favor of the recall of every missionary.

If I give less than heretofore I favor reduction of the missionary forces proportionate to my reduced contribution.

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!”

If I increase my offering beyond former years, then I favor an advance movement in the conquest of new territory for Christ.
