Jesus was supposed to come back, so now what? Here are some questions to reflect on for this Monday.
Why do some youth group parents ask us to do things we shouldn’t have to do? Looks like Jesus experienced the same thing.
A lot of times, we give up before the hard stuff even starts. We spend way too much time preparing – beyond what is reasonable or necessary.
It’s easy for us, especially for men, to evaluate ourselves by what we do instead of who we are.
Often youth workers suffer for Jesus in youth ministry because they feel it comes along with the territory of church ministry.
Putting up walls, playing it safe, keeping others and God at a safe distance – these are easy and come naturally to us.
We need to realize that other people can do things, too, probably better than us most times. We have to learn our limits.
We often lament suffering in ministry and avoid difficulties, but Paul talked about how these things strengthened both him and his ministry.
What have you done to also be an active participant in helping? Sometimes it’s not that we don’t know what to do, it’s that we think about and don’t act.
As I have grown spiritually over the years and my awareness of Who and What God really is has matured’ Instead of feeling like I am closer to the goal of Christlikeness I feel like I am further and further away. I see more and more areas in my life that just don’t measure up to His perfection.
