Common Questions:

  • How do I find my life mission?
  • What is the thing I should be teaching/advocating?
  • Who is my audience?

Brief Answers:

First, you should advocate that which is sustainable to advocate.

“The Lord has commanded that those who preach the gospel should receive their living from the gospel.”

Viability matters.

Don’t waste five years hobbling along on a project that no one supports.

Two Principles:

  1. As you’re thinking about what your life mission is, make sure you know how it ties in to your own highest values (especially the glory of God).
  2. Make sure you are choosing the opportunities that seem most likely to bear fruit, and to do so sustainably.
