Ministry Reflection Seven

How does a Christian leader grow spiritually?  It is all about about spiritual discipline.  First you have to hire a spiritual mentor.  Then you have to find a monastery in an exotic location.  You need to purchase all the books by all the great spiritual authors.

Or you could be thankful.  I have found more than anything, just thanking God for the good things that happen makes a huge difference.  Do not get me wrong, this is a spiritual discipline.  Try being thankful all day long.  Find a parking spot?  Thanks God.  Your kids tell you that they love you?  Thanks God.  New people attending the church?  Thanks God.  All day long, be thankful.  Give it a try!

  1. If you haven’t already, you should read “One Thousand Gifts” by fellow Canuk, Ann Voskamp at aholyexperience.com. Brilliant writing, solid Truth and practical. Love it!
