God’s Blessings to You!
Our Pastor was away this past Sunday. One of our members had to fill in as the worship leader. It was a nice service and it was a musically blended service so I was busy. But something was missing. Something wasn’t right. I felt it the entire service. My guitar was in tune; it wasn’t that. We had ample time to practice all the music; it wasn’t that. Our Pastor actually wrote the sermon and handed it off to a gifted speaker; so it wasn’t that. It wasn’t even the fact that our Pastor was missing, although that was part of it. I struggled for a few days trying to pin it down. Here it is Tuesday night and it just dawned on me.
One thing that our Pastor does, every time that we have a blended service is that he makes it a point to come over to my area before worship. I’m there a half hour early, in the back, fretting over microphones, running cables, practicing, tuning my guitar, and all the other brick brack; and he comes over, smiling, it doesn’t matter how busy he is, and like clockwork he says: “God’s blessing to you today Steve!” Small words, but they mean a lot. More than I had thought. Pastors, take note. Blessings on your day!
