Many of you know I am currently enrolled as a student in a MDiv program remotely. A teacher sent this announcement out to the class this week and I thought it was worth preserving.
“I was recently with a pastor who is retiring due to health. I asked him what he wished he could do differently about his ministry and he couldn’t think of anything except wishing he had exercised more. While he was imperfect, he loved his family, served his church the best he could and lived a consecrated life. He apologized for not being able to think of things he would like to have changed. I thought this was as fine a testimony as I could have heard. Don’t you want that to be your testimony when you are old as well? Do your best and follow the Lord closely and do his will. God blesses and honors that!
Have a great week and stay close to the Lord!”
I was so encouraged by this announcement. What a wonderful testimony: he was imperfect, he loved his family, served his church the best he could and lived a consecrated life. I hope that in time, I can say those things about myself. I hope also that it can be said of you, reader.
