I preached today. It's the second time since we moved to Waterville that I have preached. It is so tempting to put myself on a dissection tray eight hours after the fact. I want to listen to the sermon, and hear how I did, but I don't. You know. It's like a new recipe. It looks really good in the picture, and the ingredients sound tasty... but how is it really going to come across... do you serve it to family first or go straight for the guest.
I felt good about it, and got positive feedback. But I don't want to get addicted to positive feedback, or go seeking after it. I want to do this church thing as an offering of my life... like Brother Lawrence doing the dishes. God help me to do whatever dishes you put on my path with a heart serving you.
