‘Doing God’s Work’

Ministry thought for the day (I was reminded of this one in conversation with two good friends over lunch):

I can’t count the number of times I’ve heard people talk about pastors and priests ‘doing God’s work’. My response is, “If I’m trying to do God’s work, it’s no wonder it’s going so badly!”

Only God can do God’s work. Our job is to have the faith to make room for God to do that.
