Life - ministry is about people.
And because it's about people, we're going to have to deal with the issues that people deal with.
And that means that life and ministry is messy because we are messy.
If we would all do what we know to be right, if we would all do what we know God is calling us to do. But we don't. People don't. And because we don't, the result is chaos and dealing the the mess that people find themselves in.
That's ministry. That's life.
And unless we're ready to deal with this chaos and mess with the grace and the power of God, we have no business leading. That's what leaders are called to do - to apply God's grace and power in messy and chaotic situations.
God grant me the wisdom to lead in such a way.
God grant our leaders the same wisdom.
