The challenge of ministry in our home
is that we do not always feel very “spiritual”
when we wash our dishes.
It hardly feels significant to scrub our toilet.
We can feel that we are truly ministering when the Lord
uses us to communicate a word of wisdom to someone,
or He provides an opportunity
to share the gospel with our neighbor.
That seems like real ministry.
And that is real ministry to be sure!
But no more so than when we are wiping runny noses
or cleaning the bathroom.
That is because we have a very narrow view of true spirituality...
The Lord wants to help us see the significance of ministry at home.
