For any of you who work at a church – you can attest to the fact that sometimes ministry can feel like work – and sometimes attending church can feel like work. We’re at a refreshing place of being able to truly enjoy our church.
Pastor Jill taught this weekend – and as always, she truly delivered. I forgot my journal in my car this morning at the airport, so I’ll share the rest of the highlights with you later this week, but I loved this line she used:
Correction is redirection. At least it should be. Most people correct out of one of two thing: redirection (teaching and leading), or control. I was recently reading in Proverbs that the wise love correction. Sometimes it’s hard, but I try to love it. I know that there have been many days that I corrected out of control rather than redirection.
Every leader out there – do you correct? If not, you’re short-changing your people! And to those who do correct, are you doing it out of love and redirection, or from a desire to control.
P.S. It was also pretty cool to see Melinda Doolittle at church this weekend!
