I've been trying to be wise when friends come with problems - even though I know full well they just need a listening ear - not solutions from me. Tryin' hard to be wise…
I'm trying to be wise with my care about the ministry. I sometimes act as if it's my ministry and have to draw myself back hard - and lift my eyes upward to once again focus on the only reason I'm in ministry. Tryin' hard to be wise…
I catch myself worrying about who's not there, it's a normal summer but it feels way more personal this summer.
I was blessed when I found this today on my favorite author's blog.
The very Son of God had a ministry to 12. And even one of them abandoned Him. Forget the numbers in your work. Focus on the net value of your work.
May I be wise when I talk to even one. Who knows, I may have been called to ministry just to reach one!
I give up trying to be wise in the eyes of the world - and will follow and listen and wait…patiently.
