Your Mission Field

Jesus commanded us to “Go and make disciples of all nations” (Matthew 28:19).  This mandate ought to consume our minds.  However, we often miss the mission fields in our homes.  Rachel Jankovic has written a wonderful article entitled, “Motherhood as a Mission Field.”  Here are my two favorite quotes from her article.

– Everyone wants to save the world, but no one wants to help Mom with the dishes.

– Jim Elliot famously said, “He is no fool who gives up that which he cannot keep to gain that which he cannot lose.” Motherhood provides you with an opportunity to lay down the things that you cannot keep on behalf of the people that you cannot lose. They are eternal souls, they are your children, they are your mission field.
