I heard a missionary speak many years ago about a phenomenon called “missionary lift”.
When Christian missionaries go to pre-developed countries and preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ, the nature of the Church and of the Christian life has certain consequences.
A culture defined by such values as deferred gratification, humility and sacrificing for others, of self-control in matters of sexuality and personal health, have a positive economic result.
Leadership responsibilities help develop entrepreneurial and marketable skills.
A recent study of 100 countries found that the more Christians in a country, the more robust the economy.
What does this mean?
Among other things, I think it means that we are blessed to be a blessing. What do you think?
