Sustaining the Mission

“A major difficulty in sustaining one’s mission is that others who start out with the same enthusiasm will come to lose their nerve. Mutiny and sabotage come not from enemies who opposed the initial idea, but rather from colleagues whose will was sapped by unexpected hardships along the way.”
— Edwin Friedman

As I read this quote I was reminded of how many times I have seen this happen. For example, I immediately thought of Jesus and the twelve.

God,

Help us be faithful to Your mission whatever the unexpected hardships along the way. Help us be bold and courageous rather than fold under pressure. And may we do everything with love.

In Jesus’ name,
AMEN.
