Reflection

Ministry V Job.

Some people have a job in the church.
Others invite themselves into a ministry.
What’s the difference you ask?

If you are doing it just because no one else will, it’s a job.

If you are doing it to serve the Lord, it’s a ministry.

If you quit because someone criticized you, it’s a job.

If you keep on serving, it’s a ministry.

If you’ll do it as long as it does not interfere with your other activities, it’s a job.

If you are committed to staying even if it means letting go of other things, it’s a ministry.

If you quit because no one thanked you or praised you, it’s a job.

If you stick with it even though no one recognized your efforts, it’s a ministry.

It’s hard to get excited about a job.

It’s almost impossible not to get excited about a ministry.

If your concern is success, it’s a job.

If your concern is faithfulness and service, it’s a ministry.

If God calls you to a ministry, don’t treat it like a job!

Lord, strengthen your servants and
move us to a true sense of ministry and service,
through your grace and mercy  Amen.
