I was reminded....

...of my favorite Darlene Zschech quote this week:

"We serve with excellence, because we know an excellent God, and to give Him anything but our best would be disgusting".

It's not about me or you. It's about Him. If everyone else is slacking in their service it's not an excuse for me to slack. I serve an excellent God. He deserves excellence at ALL times.

Amen. Two weeks ago, our music minister came into choir practice and said that the choir was "canned" until after the first of the year. Why? Because there were only about two dozen people who were coming on a regular basis, and in a church of 800, that is not enough! He felt (and Jason and I agreed) that while 12 people could sing, we couldn't minister to a church our size with excellence.

(However, some of the people complained loudly, and even threatened to leave the church, so the next night they had another meeting with the assistant pastor [the senior pastor was out of town] and re-instated the choir on a trial basis, on the condition that it grow. Must have put the fear of God into people, because we've had about TWO dozen the past two weeks.)
