WEARING 30,000 BIBLES



Years ago a missionary returned to England for a brief furlough after many years of faithful service in India. He was invited to a dinner at a great summer resort where he met many women of prominence and position.



After dinner he went to his room and penned a letter to his wife. He wrote, "My Dearest Sweetheart: I've had dinner at the hotel. The company was wonderful. I saw strange things today. Many women were present. There were some who, to my certain knowledge, wore one church, forty cottage organs, twenty libraries and 30,000 Bibles."



You see, in his great longing for the means to provide the Gospel for spiritually hungering millions in India, he could not refrain from estimating the silks, satins, and diamonds of the guests at the dinner in terms of his people's needs on the mission field.
