The Next Big Thing

What in a persons mind makes them believe that donating money to a ministry does anything for their souls? I mean just what do they think they are paying for?

I am not talking about helping an individual in genuine need here. I am referring to the career preachers who get wealthy off gullible listeners.

I need money, but I don’t do this for the money. So I wouldn’t even know how to present a case or reasoning for getting people to give me money. They are not going to be blessed just because they hand me 5 dollars.

I would love to get some attention on my videos and for someone to basically discover me and invite my teaching into their fold. God doesn’t need to use money to make that happen. There must be other poor ministers in the truth who have a small following and look at Youtube sometimes.

I have no following off the social networks and blogs. And half the people who ever see my posts on here just want to argue. If anything I have ever shared online has ever helped anyone who wasn’t already in the truth, I don’t know about it. So its difficult for me to see what good it does …

I’m not saying that if I had people sitting under me in front of my pulpit that I would necessarily know what their lives consist of. I’ve never been given the position of counseling people before. I only know that I would not try to shove my way into someone’s personal business until they asked for me to be involved, and then I have to live with whatever choices they make after advising them … else I risk chasing them away for good.

I hurt for people’s souls. I get angry when I see the hypocrisy that blinds them because there is nothing I can do or say without causing an argument or worse. And then I feel like a hypocrite myself because I do not know how to act in a situation where I have to bite my tongue …

I catch myself rolling my eyes and murmuring under my breath about it. That only encourages a bad spirit to keep on …

So lately I wonder and question what it is that I am supposed to be praying for? Or what is it that i am supposed to be accomplishing? One struggle I am having is keeping prayer and meditation. The number one weapon of a minister is prayer and so many lose sight of this.

I haven’t lost sight of it, but I do struggle to maintain it. So many disruptions. So many disturbing spirits. So many easy distractions. I’m supposed to be a leader, but no one is listening …

I don’t mean they aren’t listening to me. I mean they are not listening to God! I’m just that previously mentioned mule pulled wagon everyone ignores while they keep their eyes looking out for the next big thing …
