When I received my first invitation to preach at a university and was asked what my honorarium would be, I answered, “It is honor enough to preach the Gospel. I can’t see why an honorarium is needed. Where I come from, the honorarium for telling the story of Christ is twenty-five years in prison. If you witness for Him in jail, it is twenty-five sticks. I will speak without honorarium.” The invitation was canceled. I was considered a nut.
