[ 1 minutes to read ]Being young in the ministry means you have many years of fruitful ministry ahead you, or not. (I would like to define “young in the ministry” in a future post and ruminate on some of the ramifications.) You probably know someone who used to be “in ministry.” You might know someone who currently is in ministry but shouldn’t be. Not all who start this race finish well, or even finish at all.
This is the subject Donald Whitney took up before a graduating class of seminary students. He touches on the almost inevitable ruin of every minister and how to avoid it. Whitney brings many years of experience and sober thinking to this vital subject. I recommend listening to this message. You should probably take good notes and meditate on the truth and wisdom of what is said.
