Family Vs. Ministry: The Eternal Tug Of War
We all "know" that the most important ministry DOES NOT begin when we pull out of the driveway but when we pull into it. Unfortunately, all too often, the people who are the most precious to us...our family...gradually become the most common due to the demands of ministry.
When it comes to successfully building a ministry and raising a family at the same time, wise council can be found in Luke 14:28, "For which of you, intending to build a tower, does not sit down first and count the cost...?" Learn in this Youth Leader's Coach some of the cost counting and strategic thinking I did and still do with my own family in order to help them feel as if they "always win."
My prayer is that when we stand before Jesus, He can celebrate the priorities that we not only preached about but chose to live.
