I really like my childrens’ friends. Another friend of Joey’s is Stephen Proctor. He writes…

Very seldom do any of us come across an opportunity to reach out to another person in need that it does not in some way interfere with our schedule for our lives.

More often than not ministry costs us something.

It is only when we choose to participate in the opportunities that come our way each day that there is a renewed since of gratefulness in our own hearts for what Christ has done for us.

The very inconvenience of reaching out to another fills our own hearts with a grateful joy upon remembering why we are even in a position to be able to reach out to and love those around us.

God is on a quest to obliterate our agenda for ourselves so that in turn He might fill us with an eternal joy and perfect fulfillment through service to others.

Stephen calls this, “grateful inconvenience.”

Amen, Stephen!
