I was having a conversation with a friend about religion and sin and stuff like that and the topic got around to his friend. She goes on mission trips to Africa or other impoverished areas. I was talking about how she is making personal impacts on those lives. And my friend was like "but think about the expense it took her to get there, it was around 3-4 grand for that trip. Wouldn't it be better if that money was just used to help the people instead of her physically being there?" Made me think about that a little differently.
