Just as I was getting annoyed with religiousity, and muttering about the state of the world I read a letter posted on Matt Turrigiano's blog, written by his dad Mike. You can link to it by clicking on the title of the post.
It's really easy for any of us who serve in the church to forget the reason for it, it's easy for it to become a chore, or a habit, or get hung up that we don't get the recogintion or reward that we think we deserve. The truth is, it's all about Jesus, that's it. It's not about me or you, or them it's all about him. John Wimber said that we are like loose change in God's pocket, he can buy a sandwich with us if he likes.
When I meditate on this it makes a lot of my attitudes and worries seem a little pointless and daft.My prayer for this week.....Lord, let me see what's important to you, and forgive me for being such an eejit!
