A wartime lifestyle is sometimes interpreted as a life of poverty. But in reality a wartime lifestyle is one of intentionality. Some things are given up for the cause. But some things are required.
The fact is, the cause of missions is right now at best multi generational. We would like it to go faster–the gospel for all in this generation–but we must balance this with the reality that we aren’t going that fast.
So we must live a life of intentionality that is effective now but also sustains us for the long run, long enough to build the exponential momentum necessary. This means building in a sustainable life with learning, recreation, growth and capacity for action.
