Just a few days ago I was struck by a thunderbolt. No, not a real thunderbolt; but rather a grace-filled thunderbolt that knocked me off my spiritually grumpy behind. It was a moment of enlightenment, a moment of grasping reality for what it was, and truthfully approaching it. Thanks to a seemingly spontaneous examination of the ministry work that I had done for the past few months, I realized that I have been approaching my ministry as if it were a chore: complete it, and get it over and done with. I was stuck in a mindset that I could enjoy myself by doing the things that I liked only after completing such tasks. Such an approach made me spiritually grumpy when I was doing ministry.
