Steering away from our intended mission is called “mission drift”. And since we live in a world that can be characterized as an open system, many forces emanating from structures that surround us can distract us from pursuing our goals. Just as waves and weather can stop ships, so to can other forces stop our trips.
This is why being self-aware or at least committing to examine our selves is very critical. Just like a shipwright needs to fix the ship or know when to recommend that the ship pause its travels, so to shall we need to fix our weaknesses and understand our identity and align ourselves towards the mission we aim to fulfill.
If we find ourselves drifting from mission fulfillment often, we should reflect: are we really committed? Is it time to pivot? Or do we need to rebuild ourselves so we can better do what we are meant to do?
Luke 19:45-48. “My house shall be a house of prayer, but you have made it a den of thieves.”
