God is teaching me to be more people focused. The more I step into the managerial role, the more I need to press in and keep my heart right. I’m learning that you can not ignore people and their needs, which is why I am here – to plunder hell and populate heaven, “for the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, and for the edifying of the body of Christ”.
I am learning more and more how to slow down, smile, make time for people, and actually listen when they talk. I have left all to follow Jesus and to do His will, but in the midst of that, if I leave people by the wayside I have not fulfilled my duty.
