I’ll get back to altar times and kids later this week. For now I submit the following:
Today – this thought ran through my head:
If I never showed up again at my church – what would or wouldn’t the impact be? Now please don’t read into this as a future plan to bolt – I love my church, my Pastor, the staff and the kids.
You’ve heard the question: “If you church suddenly shut down, would anybody in the neighborhood notice?”
I guess that’s what I’m asking – if I never showed up again; sure, the kids might be sad for a time, the staff may have a few fond memories, but… what would the lasting impact be? Have I made a difference that will leave an impression on this generation and the generations to come?
What about you? Have you made the impact in such a way that if today was your last Sunday, would change a kid’s world? Would the impression last? You really need to ask yourself that question.
Larry Norman sang, “It’s only today that counts – so, live it like it might be your last…”
Well, it’s only today that counts… minister like it might be your last.
