A note to pastors and others in ministry:
You and I will never be gifted enough. The job will always be more than what we can handle. We will never have what it takes, and God help us if we ever think otherwise.
We can, however, be honest about our weakness. I read these words from Steve Childers last week: “Don’t hold your weakness in disdain. That is God’s plan so that through your weakness he might manifest his strength.”
You will never be strong enough. You’re already weak enough, though, and so am I.

Praise God for preachers like this. It’s the kind of man I aspire to be.
