Short Term Service Trips-- Worth It?

I saw an interesting post recently by one of my college friends (who was guest blogging on another's site) on the topic of whether short term service trips by [typically] well off citizens of the world to less-fortunate countries are worth it.
It's an interesting discussion, and one that causes me to at least stop and think about the trips I've personally been able to make. I think it is important for a person to examine where their own mind and heart are at when they choose to embark on a trip such as this. But in my case, I do feel confident it was a trip of value.
