Gary Hoag: The Impact of Generosity – Hudson Taylor

“The less I spent on myself and the more I gave to others, the fuller of happiness and blessing did my soul become.”

Hudson Taylor (1832-1905) missionary to China, as recounted by Randy Alcorn in Treasure Principle (Sisters: Multnomah 2001) 21.

Together with my long-time friend, Chi-Chung Keung, it’s been amazing to spend time with Chinese missionaries and church planters, both indigenous servants of Christ and internationals who have ministered in Asia for many years.

They give of themselves and their resources sacrificially, and the joy of the Lord shines from their lives. They have inspired Chi-Chung Keung and I to serve and support the growing church in China together and rally others to join us.

What opportunities has God put in front of you and your friends, that if you spent less on yourselves and served together 2×2, would return a blessing to your souls and touch countless lives for Christ Jesus? You might become the next Hudson Taylor!
