Strings for Your Harp

     Part IV. The Imperatives

        C. Missions

           Christ cared enough for sinners
           to die for them.
           Do we care enough for sinners
           to live to reach them?

           If God could turn some of us inside out,
           He might send us
           to turn the world upside down.

           If you don't glow, don't go.

           Words are cheap -- action is expensive.

           Hearts of stone can never bleed
           for broken hearts of flesh.

           A loveless heart is a greater tragedy than
           having sightless eyes or a brainless head.

           A man is not to be judged
           by the height of his ambitions,
           but by the depth of his compassions.

           Advice given to a person in adversity
           may be misunderstood,
           but help given in a time of trouble
           needs no explanation.

           "Every man is an island!"
           He is an entity incapable of identical
           duplication or reincarnation.

           Every man is an island,
           a total and complete entity-
           a one-of-a-kind personality.

           There is a great deal of difference between
           building a boat and manning a boat.
           Theologians, in the main, build the boat --
           evangelists man it.

           It is not God's will that any should perish.
           It is not man's will that he should perish.
           It is not the Church's will
           that he should perish.
           Then why should he perish?

           Without God, without hope,
           millions are still calling
           how appalling!
