I learned this month that ministry is not about the highlight reels. Ministry does not always look like feeding orphans and visiting brothels. In fact, ministry is not even about what you previously may have considered ministry. Ministry is a lifestyle if you choose for it to be. It's about building relationships with your neighbors. It's about asking God what it is he wants you to share with your waitress while you order coffee. It's doing what Hebrews 6:10 says--by showing love by caring for other believers.

I was able to experience lifestyle ministry this month, which was an experience I am so grateful for. Being in month 7 of an 11 month journey, having the opportunity to put what I've learned the past 6 months into practice for a month has been a blessing. Jesus is just as present weeding a garden as he is when I'm holding abandoned babies.
