I WANT TO DO MEANINGFUL WORK… I THINK
I didn’t expect to be paid by the church for my time, and perhaps, in return, there was an unspoken agreement that the church would not have expectations of me. I would go on contributing as my schedule allowed, popping in to surprise the church staff with some extra hands when inspired.
I think I want to do meaningful work. “Kingdom work” that worships God, advances the gospel, loves the church, and ministers to others is eternally meaningful. But am I too afraid of failure to actually give it my all?
