Mission vs. Relationships

An acquaintance of mine was reportedly so focused on the mission of helping orphans that when someone new would call for an appointment he would say, “If this meeting won’t somehow help an orphan, I really don’t have time to meet.”

Having clarity of what your mission is, and sticking to it, is the best way towards success. However, we are also called to love others, which can sometimes be disruptive to our plans.

Some leaders struggle with the tension between staying focused on their mission, while maintaining and cultivating important relationships.

Galatians 5:16 teaches, “But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not carry out the desire of the flesh.”

Before dismissing an opportunity to love others, stop, pray and listen for the Holy Spirit’s leading.
