Churches spend thousands, if not tens of thousands of dollars on quality sound systems and hundreds of thousands if not millions of dollars on worship facilities. Worship leaders and speakers also often invest thousands of dollars in training, instruments, and resources, not to mention countless hours in sermon preparation, worship rehearsals, worship planning, and prayer. All of this time and money is dedicated to honoring the Lord, reaching the lost, and empowering the church.
However, one small weekly personal investment can help pastors and worship leaders when it comes time to make real connections with people.
No matter how great our upfront preparation is and will be, if we speak personally with people and they are offended by our breath, we will lose vital opportunities to share the gospel, encourage the timid, or recruit vital leaders and volunteers.
Yeah, John, when you were in Henderson, the smell of Mr. B’s Buffalo wings was almost more than I could take. Thanks for learning to freshen up LOL. 😉 Those were good times. This is a good point. That is one reason I get uncomfortable when people get too close.
Thanks, Kenny! That’s funny. I hope you are doing well.
I totally agree with you. I sometimes get nervous when I’m around my fellow group for two reasons. One: their breath might stink. Two: or it could be mine. LOL
Thanks so much for the comment. Isn’t it the truth?
No problem and Yep. It’s the truth.
