Two Ways to Think About It

As I listen to a Christian professor discussing what motivates his research, I’m so struck by his claim. He says, “God gives us significant insights. . . that we then share with people to make their lives better and their appreciation of God and His goodness greater.”

We share our God-given insights to improve lives and to increase the appreciation of God and His goodness. 

When I think about personal mission statements in teaching, writing, and research–or simply just living in a neighborhood–I’m compelled by this two-fold question: “Does this activity improve lives and help people understand God’s goodness better?”

I love thinking about work and life in these terms.
