I recently read where a young family was approached by their pastor, who follows a well known megachurch pastor. The family was asked "how are you plugged into ministry? How are you serving Jesus Christ?" The mom answered she works in discipling and evangelizing--her little children. She is in compassionate ministry also as she attends to the physical and emotional needs of kids and hubby. The husband replied he takes seriously the call on him to provide for his family and to raise his children in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. Both attend church regularly with the kids. Both will serve in ministries that do not interfere with their family--mom as a ss volunteer, dad as usher, etc. Neither will at this time in their lives serve in ways that further divide the family time wise. Don't know what the pastor replied, but I thought they were a wise young couple!
