In Ministry, It’s Not About What You Have That Matters

A few weeks ago I came across this tweet from Bill Murray:

Murray TweetWhile being hilarious (and true) I think there’s a nugget of wisdom in this tweet for those of us in ministry, and it’s this:

It’s not what you have; it’s what you do with what you have that matters.

Sometimes it can be easy to focus on the things we don’t, but would like, to have:

More kids.
More volunteers.
A better building.
A larger budget.
More time.

But at the end of the day, as nice as it all sounds (and it does sound pretty nice), you don’t necessarily need more to do better. Great stuff can happen without all the flash. Lives can still be changed whether or not you’re in a great building, or have tons of volunteers, or iPads at check-in.

On days when you’re feeling discouraged you don’t have more, or bigger, or better, spend some time thinking about this one thing that will NEVER change in Children’s Ministry:

Children + Caring Adults + Christ = World Change
