Many of us spend our lives working towards traditional milestones of success such as home ownership, career advancement, and retirement. We are left unsatisfied, always chasing the next milestone of success. Does this sound familiar? While achieving the “American Dream” may mark success in the eyes of men, what defines success in the eyes of God?

In this video from our Mission Minded Podcast, Jim and Jon are joined by Kim Smith, who is spending his “retirement” sharing the Gospel in Liberia. During this discussion, we are encouraged in knowing that God does not call us to a life of success as many would define it. Instead, He calls you away from what Kim deems the “idols of the Western Church” and into a life of kingdom-minded purpose. The only thing required to claim this purpose is to “just show up”.
