When we bring our gifts to the feet of Jesus, we want to bring
everything we have. We aren’t called to be perfect, but to offer our best.
Serving in any ministry environment requires sacrifice, but worship ministry
can sometimes require a little more than others. You have to practice at
home, show up on Thursday nights, and show up early on Sunday mornings
– that’s no small sacrifice. We always value effort over excellence. When we’re
focused on excellence, it’s easy to get wrapped up in performance and comparison,
and lose track of our purpose. But, when we give our best effort, we get
better; we become more excellent at our craft, while keeping our focus on
glorifying the Lord with our gifts.
