Value Yourself

One of the things with mission is that there is always more that can be done.  There is a danger that we spend so much time planning, running committees, organising workshops etc that we lose sight of the mission task.  That needs not to be so.  However, neither should we run ourselves into the ground.  God doesn't ask of us more than is possible for us - and God values our contributions.  Adrian Chatfield (in "Pioneers 4 Life" ed David Male, BRF, 2011, p. 86) comments: "Don't allow the church to load burdens on you that God never intended.  Not least, treat yourself as God treats you, with forgiveness, generosity and an awareness of the value that he sees in you.  God has time for you, so have time for yourself."
