As a child, I loved watching the television series Mission: Impossible. Every episode began with an agent and a tape. The anonymous recorded voice would say, “Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is….” My heart would always start pumping, waiting for the assignment to be unveiled and for the tape to self-destruct. Then the mysterious spy-master would describe some wild and dangerous task, with little chance of success or survival. The agent always chose to accept the challenge. I can’t ever remember him turning it down. It would have put quite a damper on the show if the hero said, “Are you kidding? No way would I do that! Are you crazy? A guy could get hurt doing stuff like that!” and then just walked away, never to fulfill the mission (as the tape went up in smoke). Thankfully, that never happened; he always accepted the call. Then immediately, he would assemble the team, communicate the plan, set everything in motion and follow through to the end. And I would happily join the courageous group in my mind, sharing the joy of their final success.There is a parallel, I believe, with what God offers us (His sons and daughters) throughout our lives. At various points along the way (you never know when) God opens the door to unique experiences, opportunities, and challenges. Like the spy in Mission: Impossible, we can choose to accept these undertakings, these missions, these callings, or we can walk away. Mark Twain said it beautifully, “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”
