Written by A. W. Tozer (1897-1963) an American pastor, author, magazine editor, and spiritual mentor. This is an excerpt from his book “Born After Midnight.”

To God quality is vastly important and size matters little. When set in opposition to size, quality is everything and size nothing…Man’s moral fall has clouded his vision, confused his thinking and rendered him subject to delusion.

How big? how much? and, how many? are the questions oftenest asked by religious persons when trying to evaluate Christian things…The Church is dedicated to things that matter. Quality matters. Let’s not be led astray by the size of things.
