I wonder how i was so clueless to the point that i didn't see what he truly is
He did an amazing move on Sunday.
He talked about forgiveness.
Amazing. A good lesson for everyone to learn. After all, we are all hurt and angered by someone in the church. However the irony is that of all people, he is the one preaching it.
The one who caused the hurt and frustration of many people.
How many were hurt by his careless words? How many of them are angry over his stubborness not to listen to advice?
How many left the church for better shephards?
He doesn't need to manipulate people to get the church moving. Not at all. All he has to do is to show to us that he truly cares for the people who he is shepherding and give us the necessary support as we serve- reliable,loving people who has eyes on God and not on the things aroud them.
Is it difficult to see?
Perhaps, after all, i know what it is like not to be able to reach the standards that people had set for me. The unrealistic standards that i tried to met and instead I fell and hurt myself emotionally. And the worst part is that instead of support, i find wrath.
Desires that are self driven. Ambitions that are not meant to be. What is the joy of ambition when you end up driving people away from you. What is the joy of trying to please someone when in the end, they don't care about what happen to you. They just want to milk all you are worth and just get on with their 'roadmap' to success.
You don't need seminars and bible studies to try to let us see that you are trying to help. At the end, you will just chuck them aside if they fail and not want to do anything with it- using excuses such as 'no time' or 'not worth investing the time' to worm away out.
It isn't wrong to fail. It is only wrong when you refuse to see the failure as something to learn from and to build from it. After all, mistakes are merely lessons that are to be learnt.
What are you doing? Stop trying to manipulate us. The more you do it, the worse you become.
As long as you continue to be yourself, that's enough

But as long as they have something in their hearts to believe in, that courage will never vanish
