Believers who spend more money each week on candy, ice cream, soft drinks, and coffee than they give to the spread of the Gospel throughout all nations have a serious problem with priorities. Likewise, those who spend more for cable television than they give to missions should be ashamed. They show by their actions what they really believe to be important. We must not squander what God gives us on frivolous indulgence with little or no regard for His work or His glory.
Paul W. Downey, More Than Spectators, (Greenville, SC: Ambassador Emerald, 2002), 123.
