MISSIONAL MINDSET IS NOT A TRIP (Alsbury Baptist Church)
I have been asked by many, “why didn’t you take a mission trip this summer?” Let me answer that important question.
I want to be careful to not limit our understanding of missions to an event or a trip. Being involved in missions is having a mindset to be intentional to meet the needs of others in order to share the love of God. Having a missional mindset should be a character quality that we all work on developing to be a part of who we are on a daily basis, and it does not require a trip.
I think mission trips are great things, as I am about to head out with our college students on a mission trip to serve the needy children in Amarillo. But, this week was a good reminder for us all that missions is more than a trip to take, it is a mindset to develop which we can do right here in our own area.
