I’ve questioned lately if I’m too old for what I do.
After a full on youth weekend all I’ve wanted to do is sleep, but then I’ve wondered if it was because I spent the previous weekend in hospital, may I also add a huge thanks to Johnsonville Corps for everything you did for me!!
So is there a too old?
I often hear that you’re never too young to be in ministry, that God can use you no matter what, but what about the other end of the spectrum?
I was reminded last weekend that Moses was 40 when he left Egypt and 80 when God called him to return and save the Hebrew people. Jesus didn’t start his ministry until he was 30, and that only lasted 3 years!
In fact, there is a lot of rather “mature” people mentioned in the Bible that served God in remarkable ways. So my message to you today, if you are a young ‘un just starting out in ministry, or if you’ve been doing it a little while, or if you’ re up there in the “mature” category like me, get alongside someone at the other end of the spectrum.
We all keep learning, and the best way to do that is to find someone to grow with.
