Missions food for thought

According to Ralph Winter of the US Center for World Missions, “A person must overeat by at least two dollars worth of food per month to maintain one excess pound of flesh.  Yet two dollars per month is more than what 90% of all Christians in America give to missions. If the average mission supporter is only five pounds overweight, it means he spends (to his own hurt) at least five times as much as he gives for missions. If he were to choose simple food (as well as not overeat) he could give ten times as much as he does to mission and not modify his standard of living in any other way!

Wow! That goes with Pastor Danny's recent message about self-control (Ezra 3, at calvarystp.org)
