…our tactics are simply crazy. Perhaps 80% of our efforts for Christ—weak as they often are—still are aimed at only 20% of the world’s population. Literally hundreds of millions of dollars are poured into every kind of Christian project at home, especially buildings, while only a thin trickle goes out to the regions beyond. Half-hearted saints believe by giving just a few hundred dollars they have done their share. We all have measured ourselves so long by the man next to us we barely can see the standard set by men like Paul or Jesus Himself.

George Verwer (via K.P. Yohannan, Revolution in World Missions, 173)
