Billy Sunday once said, I have gained the world, but lost my family. As you have learned from the module videos, Billy Sunday was a successful evangelist who left a legacy of family failure. He had three sons and a daughter. His daughter died early in her life, and all three of his sons died before they were 40. His three sons had cumulatively been married nine times. William Carey translated the Bible into approximately 37 languages; however, his wife went crazy and tried to kill him twice. Adoniram Judson lost two wives and several children on the mission field.
What is the difference between Carey and Judson? Is a righteous mission justified at any cost? Do you trust God to take care of the things you neglect when you pursue His will? Should there be a balance between ministry and family?
I attached an article with my view of family and ministry.
