How Will I Discover What God Wants Me To Do?

With upright heart he shepherded them and guided them with his skillful hand. ?(PS 78.72)

“Here we see the combination of competence and character. ?David led his people with a heart of integrity (character) and skillful hands (competence). ?These qualities should always go hand in hand in the life of a leader.” – Dave Kraft, Leaders Who Last

When I was younger I told a wise older Christian man that I didn?t know how God wanted me to serve him. ?How would I discover my gifts? ?He gave me this great advice:

?Take care of the depth of your character and the Lord will take care of the breadth of your ministry.?

In other words, don?t worry about your ministry. ?Pursue the Lord; obey him and seek to become like him in character; serve others in whatever way you can and he will take care of your ?ministry.?

I’m a pastor at Saving Grace Church in Indiana, PA. I’m married to Kristi, have 5 kids, and a growing number of grandkids. I enjoy songwriting, oil painting and coffee, not necessarily in that order.
