Kingdom Principle: Righteousness; Part III
Locate in Scripture: Luke 18:9-14
In 2004 I headed out with a group to church plant. Over the next several years we worked tirelessly caring for the growing church. It was a great experience. Many times filled with heartache, but most of the time filled with joy and excitement. However, the seeds of discouragement set in after an encounter with someone who ‘meant well’ and then nurtured when family situations drastically changed making it hard to maintain the demands of family, work and ministry. I needed help and found that the well was too dry to continue. Somewhere along the line what was a joy and passion had become a terrible burden. But instead of seeking the help I needed from the Lord, I ran and quit the ministry because I didn’t know how to continue. I was tired, I was beaten up and most of all I was discouraged.
