Here's a few notes I scribbled down in the midst of a million other things that were going on. I'll spare you the commentary as I believe most of them are self-explanatory.
"Minister from your life. Don't make ministry your life."I know Mark ruffles some feathers. But I find much of what he does say to be pure gold in the wisdom department.
"Don't allow ministry to become your idol."
"Ministry is the one idol that other Christians will bless."
"Sabbath is fun. Involuntary Sabbath is not fun."
"(In the church) Your wife and children should do whatever they would do if they were not with you."
"You'll have lots of fans, lots of foes, and very few friends. Ministry is lonely."
