Sell Out...

From Ben Arment's blog:

I've gone through life hearing people say, "Well, you've got to pay the bills," as a resignation from their calling. But I wonder if what they're really saying is, "I don't want to sacrifice my standard of living for my God-given purpose."

Just thinking out loud.

What has God called me to do? Or maybe the question we should ask ourselves is: "If I could do anything and knew that I wouldn't fail, what would I do for God?"

After all... who wants to be a sell out?

However, often the truth really is "I've got to pay my bills."

It's not like all pastors are living in the lap of luxury, especially small church pastors. Too often, churches are just being cheap with their pastors' pay.
