Be a Scavenger

Published: November 27, 2012

“In a challenging ministry situation, do something counter-intuitive. Rather than bearing down on all the ungodly things a person is doing, be a scavenger for good things going on in the person’s life. What encouraging things do you see? You’ve got to be able to do that if you are going to care for people well. You’ve got to be able to encourage people who are struggling with sin.”
