Savior or Sinner?

“Over time, our status—in our churches and in our heads—can grow to an unhealthy level.

It may also cause us to believe the key to successful ministry is always having the right answers and advancing our knowledge and skills so that everyone who seeks our help can receive it.

This need to maintain our position as the expert can, ironically, prevent us from acquiring the quality that the very best Christian leaders possess—empathy.

We are happy to play the role of savior, but we don’t want to be identified as sinners.”
