This is just some general missions discussion.
Lots of times when missionaries or workers overseas come home on furlough one of the questions they get asked is "Is it worth it?' Sometimes in the midst of their service they may also ask themselves the same question.
But if we are asking "is it worth it?" that may be the wrong question. The real question should be "Is He Worthy? The truth is even when the challenges come He Is worthy.
Lord help us to love you radically and serve you joyfully because You are worthy and that never changes!
