What Wanamaker Saw In China

John Wanamaker once made a trip to China to determine how well the money he had given to missions was being used. He came upon an old man plowing with a crude instrument. It was drawn by an ox and a young man. Asking for an explanation, he was told that his chapel needed a spire to be visible for miles around. The members had prayed, but the money was not enough. Then the son had said, “Let us sell one of our oxen and I will take the yoke of the ox we sell.” Wanamaker prayed, “Lord, let me be hitched to a plow, so that I may know the joy of sacrificial giving.”
