~~~~~~~ THOUGHTS:

"When you shoot an arrow of truth, dip its point in honey" - An old Arab proverb

Dwight L. Moody was accompanying a fellow minister on a visit to invite a wealthy church member to give toward the establishment of a city mission. Upon inquiry Moody learned that such people usually gave $30 to $75, but since Moody was with him, the minister was going to ask for $250.

When they arrived at the wealthy lady's home, Moody was introduced, and the soliciting minister discussed the subject of the mission. Before the point in the conversation dealing with the amount of any gift was reached. Moody tactfully took over. "Madam," he said, "we would like to have you give us $10,000 for the city mission."

Moody's friend grew pale and gasped. The lady likewise caught her breath.

"Oh, Mr. Moody," she exclaimed, "I couldn't possibly give you more than $5,000!"

"Then, madam, we shall have to be contented with that." It is reported that Moody's friend had to be supported down the steps as they left with the $5,000 check. Sometimes it pays to "ask big."

A small farm girl was asked whether her cow gave milk.

"Yes," she replied, "she does. But you have to kind of take it away from her."
