I also want my bills paid. But making pastoral decisions that have more to do with holding on to our salary packages than making disciples has made much of the western church anemic.
The church I pastor is no exception to that. At least not as much of an exception as it should be. That’s not their fault as much as it is mine.
Jesus promised that if we serve his kingdom first, “all these things” will be taken care of.
Let’s trust him to do that and turn the church loose.
