Perspective for Pastors of Small Churches

Here is a quote from Charles Simeon that encouraged me:

It was painful indeed to see the church, with the exception of the aisles, almost forsaken; but I thought that if God would only give a double blessing to the congregation that did attend, there would on the whole be as much good done as if the congregation were doubled and the blessing limited to only half the amount. This comforted me many, many times, when, without such a reflection, I should have sunk under my burden.

I found it in the following biographical sermon by John Piper: Brothers, we must not mind a little suffering.
