The Decades Speak: Lessons #6-10
It is hard to believe that over thirty years of youth ministry have already passed. What a journey it has been! I often say, "The years will teach you what the days never know."
This series, "The Decades Speak," is a compilation of thirty of the most significant and impacting principles I have learned along the way. It's a wealth of insights and lessons learned through the hard knocks of youth ministry over the years. Let this resource be encouragement and strength for both your own heart and for your ministry.
Lovingly on Your Side,
This is Part 2 of 8, covering Lessons #6-10
Lesson #6 - Spirits reproduce spirits...you teach what you know but reproduce who you are.
Lesson #7 - If you haven't been taken for granted, taken advantage of, or stood up recently, you aren't in real youth ministry...understanding that it's part of the journey.
Lesson #8 - The Enemy reserves the right to cash in on your personal sin the season in your life that he deems it to be the most opportune for his purposes.
Lesson #9 - Take some decent vitamins and keep all 5 ministry tanks full...staying in it for the long haul.
Lesson #10 - True happiness doesn't come from a large youth ministry; it comes from a large heart...remembering to love one person at a time.
