I came across this blog post last week on Sojourners and it resonated with me. I am not burned-out…[today] but I have gone through seasons where I wonder if any of the work we are doing to reach our community and world matters.
Are we making an impact?
Are we doing things right?
Are we doing the right things?
Are we pleasing God?
Are we representing the church well?
Are we creating a sustainable model or one of dependence?
Are we doing more harm than good?
This author, Stephen Mattson, encourages us to “Never quit, and never underestimate your involvement in justice work, because it means passionately caring for humanity — people who are often the most vulnerable, persecuted, abused, helpless, and exploited. Which matters. Keep going. Stay inspired. Seek justice. Pursue God.”
Check out the full article. I hope that it is as encouraging to you as it was to me. Be encouraged in your work, your ministry and your life for Him.
