“Yet even in ministry, our wayward hearts want to use people, rather than love them, to take all these tiny little things—applause, affirmation, acceptance, affluence, authority—and keep shoveling them into the void, hoping they will eventually fill it.

Until we find deep rootedness in Christ, we will continually use the people we are called to serve in order to find our own validation. And they will let us down. They will fail to give us the meaning our hearts long for.”
