Missionary Lift

   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?
