The question caused us to pause and really reflect on the vision and mission for our efforts at Sonkist Ministries. In reality, it does cost a great deal of time, money, and energy to write, edit, and develop materials—especially in today’s marketplace. And, there are many great Christian books available in bookstores and online. Was this individual right? Should we continue putting so much effort into publishing more products for people?
As often happens, God quickly gave us reassurance that we were on the right path—and the Scripture we came across not long after that question was raised was quite clear:
Let the whole earth sing to the Lord!
Sing to the Lord; praise His name.
Each day proclaim the good news that He saves.
Publish His glorious deeds among the nations.
Tell everyone about the amazing things He does.
Great is the Lord! He is most worthy of praise!
Psalm 96:1-4a (emphasis added)
And we have you to thank for helping us fulfill this calling. Thank you for your prayers as we work and write. Thanks for sharing Sonkist books and resources with others who need the encouragement. We are so grateful to be on this faith journey with you—some of you we may never get to meet until we’re united with the Lord in Heaven one day. In the meantime, let’s keep focused on the mission to which we are all called: Tell all the nations, “The Lord reigns!” (verse 10a).
