quote by William Carey

I was once young and now I am old, but not once have I been witness to God's failure to supply my need when first I had given for the furtherance of His work. He has never failed in His promise, so I cannot fail in my service to Him.

— William Carey

He that gives all, though but little, gives much;

because God looks not to the quantity of the gift, but to the quality of the givers.


Do not give, as many rich men do, like a hen that lays her eggs ...and then cackles.

Give God what's right, not what's left!

Examples are few of men ruined by giving.

What the Bible says is really true-it's better to give than to receive.

We can all be stimulated to greater generosity by the known generosity of others.


Teach us to give and not to count the cost.
