Some people have questioned me on moving my family to Asia in order to plant churches as if it is "hatred" towards my wife and son. In this video clip, John Piper discusses God, Manhood & Ministry, touching on this very idea and the lack of understanding. The key that Piper points out here is that those that question my motivation of moving my family to plant churches do not have the mind of Christ and so to them it comes across as a form of hatred or cruelty; but the reality is that in obedience to the calling of God you often have to make these tough choices and sacrifices.
