Unseen Value…

1024 576 Wayne

“In the economy of God’s kingdom, there is not a single thought, feeling, or moment that is lost. Nothing is unseen or unrecorded. God is our witness.

But as church leaders, we are tempted, perhaps more than others, to believe that our value is defined by the visible, quantifiable, and tweet-able aspects of our lives. How many came? How many followed? How many liked?

This is a soul-crushing mistake, and is perhaps why we struggle with prayer.

Prayer, which is our private communion with God, is not something others can see. In prayer only God is our witness, and in prayer only God is our reward.”
