From Pete Scazzero’s blog…quoting Gordon MacDonald. I read it and think, “This is me.” Perhaps another season of ministry life. I started ministry as a young man and became so accustomed to telling myself “Let no one look down on your youth.” It is startling to wake up one day and realize that is no longer the case.
“You can anticipate when younger people begin asking you questions they ask a mother or father. If you are over 50, the needle of your ministry life will move from programs to people. Focus your life on being a spiritual mother/father to younger people.”
