A Job and A Ministry

Do you have a job in this church and this community . . . or do you have a ministry? There is a difference!

If you are doing it because no one else will, it’s a job. If you’re doing it to serve the Lord, it’s a ministry.

If you’re doing it just well enough to get by, it’s a job. If you’re doing it to the best of your ability, it’s a ministry.

If you’ll do it only so long as it doesn’t interfere with other activities, it’s a job. If you’re committed to staying with it even when it means letting go of other things, it’s a ministry.

If you quit because no one praised you or thanked you, it was a job. If you stay with it even though no one seems to notice, it’s a ministry.

If you do it because someone else said that it needs to be done, it’s a job. If you are doing it because you are convinced it needs to be done, it’s a ministry.

It’s hard to get excited about a job. It’s almost impossible not to get excited about a ministry.

If your concern is success, it’s a job?
