This week’s Monday Morning Message from Wm. H. Danforth, founder of Ralston Purina: What is the Monday Morning Message?
“Increase Fivefold? Say, it will take a life time to do that.” All right, let it take a life time, but begin at once— this very week.
Here’s a little example for you. Suppose you had twenty-eight years to accomplish some definite ideal that would live after you and make the world a better place than you found it. Which of the following would you rather do?
1. Be a preacher and build a church from nothing to 10,000 members.
2. Found and direct a college.
3. Establish and operate an orphanage, and also a home for widows.
4. Edit a monthly magazine of far-reaching influence.
5. Write and publish forty books.
Wouldn’t any one of these five be a life achievement for a really great man? But listen to this: — All five of these lasting works were packed into a short twenty-eight years by one man — the great Charles H. Spurgeon.
