REAL INFLUENCE

lottie-moonA study in the early 90’s revealed that men who are 6’2” or taller have starting salaries that, on average, are 12.4% higher than equally-qualified men who are less than six-feet tall. In contrast, Southern Baptists use the name of one female missionary to raise over $100 million per year for international mission work. Lottie Moon carried the Gospel of Jesus Christ to mainland China over a hundred years ago and radically changed the dynamics of missions. And, by the way, this missionary giant stood a staggering 4’3” tall. Real influence has nothing to do with your size, but it has everything to do with what is in your heart.

“For as he thinks in his heart, so is he.” (Proverbs 23:7)

(adapted from Living Obediently, Brian Harbour, 1992,p.36 and Lady of Courage, Ann Hughes, 1987, p.24)
