Mission Creep — “the expansion of a project or mission beyond its original goals.”
The last week has forever embedded the term “mission creep” in our family lore. 🙂 I’ll skip the details — suffice to say the term will NOT be forgotten.
Just a quick thought from Sunday’s sermon. Luke 23:28-31 gives the last recorded words of Jesus before He was crucified. He said, “Weep not for Me.”
You don’t weep for someone who is carrying out His plan, on His way to His greatest victory. The Cross was not “mission creep,” something that wasn’t planned. It didn’t “happen” to Him — He laid down His life, just as He came to do.
Unlike us, God never suffers “mission creep.”
