I am constantly reading blogposts that I want to share, but all the while, I am thinking that I don’t want to linking you to someone else’s blog for fear that you will like it more than mine. This is selfish; I know. But it is true.
Yet, when a blog post manages to say beautifully what I always wish that I could say, I am really hard pressed. This post is so good that my fears are overcome. In fact, I want you to not only read this post; I want you to share it too.
Here’s a little excerpt:
It is easy to think you have a heart for orphans on the other side of the world, but if you spend your time at home resenting the imposition your children are on you, you do not. You cannot have a heart for the gospel and a fussiness about your life at the same time. You will never make any difference there if you cannot be at peace here. You cannot have a heart for missions, but not for the people around you. A true love of the gospel overflows and overpowers. It will be in everything you do, however drab, however simple, however repetitive.
Read the rest here.
Tomorrow I will write my “Cousins” post if my dad and cousins will finally send me the relevant photos that I’ve been begging for . . . hint. . . . hint.
