Church Elder (via phone): Hi, Pastor, how are you?
Elder: Say, we’re launching a new prayer ministry Thursday night, and would love for you to join us. What do you have going on that evening?
Pastor: Nothing, actually.
Elder: Great! So, we’ll see you around 6:45 pm at church, then?
Elder: Oh, I’m sorry, I thought you said you were doing nothing that night.
Pastor: You’re right, and that’s what I plan on doing that night…nothing.
Elder: Humph. (click)
Your busy lifestyle and schedule does not impress anyone or cause others to feel sorry for you. Stop responding to “How are you doing?” with, “Good, but busy.” Everyone’s busy.
What we need out of you is a rested mind, body and soul so you can be at your best when called upon.
Schedule NOTHING on your calendar today.
