So sad, but true. Here, in a 3 minute video, is a pretty accurate recap of the first 3/4 of my ministry life. I was a “fixer”, a “designer”, a “planner”, and “program author”. Could write all the manuals, teaching points, charts and illustrations, and bullet lists for any conceivable ministry effort. I was often lost in paperwork for days at a time.
Jesus laughed at me a lot. Nothing wrong with my heart, just sort of had my priorities a bit confused. I used to believe in “interruptions”. I don’t anymore. There’s just “opportunities”.
How about you and those you serve with? Which do you believe in?
“Interruptions to the Work of Ministry”
“Opportunities to Minister” ?
How do we look at an unexpected expression of need? I hope you enjoy this video as much as I did! Grace to thee!
