86. The Work of Full-Time Staff Is Based on Service
1 A gracious donation is based on what one can give willingly. There are no set rules for what amount to give. Donations from willing strivers are the sources of funds for Church regular expenses. One of the major expenditures is for personnel, in subsidizing full-time staff strivers. All full-time staff strivers are strivers that have dedicated themselves to serving the Church. They are paid monthly by the Church. The amount is not much, so you can only consider their salary as work subsidy.
2 If we use ten thousand New Taiwan Dollars as work subsidy monthly, when a striver contributes five hundred monthly, it requires the contributions of twenty strivers to pay for the monthly work subsidy of one full- time staff striver. Even a small gift can go a long way. As the old adage says: “Travel a thousand miles to deliver some goose feathers, but it conveys a deep sentiment,” The sentiment is indeed very deep.
3 Therefore, all you full-time staff strivers, dedicate yourselves to doing your work with all of your hearts and all your might. Come for the sake of serving God. Shoulder your responsibility and work hard. If you slack off, you will have to bear the consequences.
3 所以專職同奮一定要盡心盡力做事，真正為 上帝服務而來，負起責任努力工作。如果有所懈怠，一定會承受到自己種下的後果。
