What about life outside of your ministry?

This is directed at my friends in ministry, and includes myself.

How would you rate your ministry on a scale of 1-10.  Don't think too hard. Just rate it.

What about your marriage?  1-10.

Your personal spiritual life?  1-10.

Your parenting? 1-10.

Your friendships? 1-10.

Are they all the same?  Ideally they are all 10s, but I think if we're honest with ourselves we put the most work into the ministry.  And maybe we even wear success in ministry as a badge, hoping to cover up lower scores in the rest of our life.

Jesus had a life outside of his times of ministry.  How do you think he scored?

If you want to chat more on this, join me and other youth workers at 11:30 Thursday at 700 Main in Peoria.  It should be fun.  Plus COCUSA's buying lunch.
