missionary principles (10)
ALLOWANCE SHOULD BE BASED ON NEEDS, NOT WORTH
“The best plan is to share and share alike, that is, if we have faith enough to keep the pot full; then there will be sufficient for all. It is dangerous to pay big salaries. Most so-called ‘Faith Missions’ set aside just sufficient to meet the cost of living, and that is a wise plan. It does not put the missionary too high above the native. It does not overburden the church at home. It honors God. Too much equipment is a hindrance rather than a blessing.”
Oswald J. Smith, The Challenge of Missions, page 136.
