Perspective from my 2 1/2 year old

I had a great day ruined by a rough evening.  I came home disturbed at several critiques I had received in regards to my ministry (not really new to get critiques part of ministry, they hit harder tonight), I shared with Christina then sat down to decompress, which is when I saw this photo:My 2 1/2 year old, and suddenly I had perspective.  This morning this same 2 1/2 year while we were driving said, “I going to be pastor too Daddy.” He said those words without any prompting. I was listening to sports talk radio while we were driving, I turned down and asked, “What did you say? “Daddy I going to be pastor too.”  Perspective.  What matters most in my life is being faithful to God and His calling and vision for my life and ministry and secondly that both my boys always find joy in the career of ministry. Whether they follow my career path or not is really between them and God, but it is my responsibilty to make sure ministry is never a curse on their life.  Perspective. If I do that well I guess it really doesn’t matter if others critique or chop down or decide I am doing a poor job in some area of ministry…praise God my 2 1/2 year old “going to be pastor too.” Perspective.
