A look into the things I'd like to do, life I'd like to lead, man I'd like to be, items I'd like to avoid, and the adventure that occurs between dream and reality.
In life we like to measure our success by what we produce. In ministry this means that we feel successful when our attendance goes up, or when we feel like everybody likes us, or if we get a raise. Or we feel like a failure when the opposite of those happens.
Unfortunately, that's a skewed reality. Love this post by Craig Groeschel about how we need to view our success in Christ. Good to remember when you're doing well, or when you're floundering along. JM
