Yesterday’s answer:
C   He would be worth more financially
From the life of Orley Seymour Stapley:   In March, 1897, he went into the hardware business, together with his father-in-law (Alexander Hunsaker), with a capital of $500. This partnership existed until 1898, when Brother Stapley sold out his interests, being called on a mission to the Southern States. He filled this mission from 1898 to 1900, laboring principally in Mississippi. When he was set apart for this mission he was promised that he would be worth more if he responded to the call than he would if he had failed to go. He sacrificed his business in order to fill his mission, and the promise was literally fulfilled, for when he returned and entered into business again he became a most successful merchant. The business which he commenced in 1900 is now worth $300,000.
