As a follower of
Jesus—whoever you are, wherever you are, whatever your circumstances—you are
not alone. He is with you in the midst of your service, in the face of
uncertainty, or in the moment of crisis. ~ J. C. Middendorf
We tend to bristle and think, There must be something more significant than that! What homemaker hasn’t found herself asking, after the fiftieth load of laundry in a week or when facing yet another sink full of dirty dishes, “Is there anything significant about what I’m doing here?” Yet in God’s eyes, nothing is more significant than servanthood. The path to genuine greatness lies in serving.
We may think we don’t need accountability, but everyone needs it, especially those who claim to be Christ’s followers. We guard ourselves with the help of one another, not in judgment, but in mindful care. ~ M. E. Anderson
Some Christians seem to forget that loving others includes their pastors. It’s one thing to disagree. But gossiping and scheming against the pastor is just plain wrong. He or she is human, with feet of clay. Don’t be on the attack. You can cause irreparable damage to your church in the process. ~ M. E. Anderson
