It’s not all the meetings, reports, event planning, vision casting, or trainings. It’s not even working with upset parents, disappointed church leaders or feeling unappreciated and often misunderstood.
The hardest part of youth ministry is the emotional toll it takes to be involved with students’ lives and see them giving in to the deceit of sin despite what they know is right. It breaks my heart. But it reminds me how often I do the same. Now I understand a little of how God must feel about me.
