More important than who plows is how straight they plow. It takes time to judge this. Being off an inch now means being way off mark 10 yards later.
Being off the mark in ministry is bad. Labor, time, truth, and souls may be lost. Small errors matter. You better examine ministry closely.
At the end of each year we evaluate our ministry for the past twelve months.
Are we standing in the right place? What sort of work did we do? Was it according to God’s will? What worked or failed? How did we change? How can we do better?
The Bible instructs us to “examine yourselves” and “prove your own selves” (2 Cor 13:5).
The year is almost over! What did you do in 2019? What sort of work was it? Did you walk worthy of the Lord?
Over time there should be things learned, experience earned, and fruit returned. If not, apply correction.
If you never examine your work, you will end up way off mark. Consider the time spent as loss prevention. It’s better to prove your ministry now than to suffer loss later.
For the Lord,
