In our travels around the world (via this year's homeschool geography studies), we have made it to Africa. While visiting here, we are reading a biography of missionary David Livingstone.
These words are profound.
And they are no more true for a missionary than for a mother-homeschool teacher or for a nurse or for an office worker or for a mechanic or for anyone who lives for Jesus and walks in obedience to His calling.
If a commission by an earthly king
is considered an honor,
how can a commission by a Heavenly King
be considered a sacrifice?
~ David Livingstone
