In the course of doing our assignment we want to do it well,
and the best of course. As you are the first deployed mission
team, you earnestly want to set the best of everything.
Later on you will come to realize that the best we have put
up is not at all the best because we discover another way
better than before.
Therefore, the right attitude is to believe that what we are
doing now is not really the best; the best is elusive,
it is forever to be hunted.
Hunting for the best is what makes life thrilling and
missionary. The thrill of hunting ends when the hunter
is trapped by death. Only at that moment can the hunter
grasp the best he had been chasing in his life-time.
To believe that our work is the best is to be closed to
other possibilities for the better, even to be proud that
no one can do it better than we do.
What is important is the reason which motivates us to be
doing and not the doing itself. What matters most is,
"Thy will be done," and not what we have done.
What is important is to "whom shall i go,"
and not where shall I go.
With this perspective in mind, the "rest will be added
unto you" and then you are on the path to the BEST.
Without this perspective, you will become the BEAST.
Keep on chasing the best to tame the "beast" in us!
