Mission Statement

**This post first appeared on Not About Me in August 2012.  The author moved it to this blog.**

We recently developed a mission statement to help us focus on what God has called us to do.  We didn’t notice until we finished that it’s really all about His glory.  Does your family have a mission statement?  Please share!


Attitude – servanthood, self-sacrifice:  Your attitude should be the same as that of Chist Jesus . . . to the glory of God the Father.  (Phil 2:5-11)

Love – agape, tangible:  By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.  (John 13:35)

Light – noticeably different, draws attention:  Let your light shine before others, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.  (Matt 5:16)


Intentional – living life on purpose, thinking:  . . . It was for this very reason I came to this hour. Father, glorify your name!  (John 12:27b-28a)

No excuses – bold, risk-taking, absolute surrender:  I eagerly expect and hope that I will in no way be ashamed, but will have sufficient courage so that now as always Christ will be exalted in my body, whether by life or by death.  (Phil 1:20)
