Wrapping up: I thought to reflect briefly on the life of a American missionary to the South American country Ecuador. Jim Elliot died while on mission activities amongst indigenous people. Jim knew confidently that faith required action, that he needed to share God’s mercy and that God cared for all people. We are never foolish in God’s eyes if we give up things of this world for the gift of eternal life. We are never foolish in God’s eyes when we seek to share God’s good news. Go then boldly and share God’s wonderful message of grace through his son Jesus Christ.
Go in peace. Amen.
