I love the students in our S&L College Ministry.
But more than them, I love Jesus. Don’t forget this, Daniel Park. Always love the Creator. May He be the reason why you serve, and not the other way around. It’s not that: “because you love the people, you will love God more.”
Never boast to others about how much you do for the ministry. No shepherd should be out there, yelling, “Ha! Look at my flock! Look at how diligent I am!”
Please tell those ministrians, servants, pastors, whoever, to calm down, to remember who called them to serve in the first place. Certainly there are people using their talents and skills to glorify themselves and talking about how they would die for their callings. Chill. I do not doubt that you would, no, but I do question if your heart is still on fire for God (or something else now).
