Good Morning, Ministry Partner!

March 23, 2020

Be Encouraged by God's Word
“I have the right to do anything,” you say—but not everything is beneficial. “I have the right to do anything”—but not everything is constructive. No one should seek their own good, but the good of others.

  - 1 Corinthians 10:23-24, NIRV


Wisdom from Fellow Pilgrims 
The test of a preacher is that his congregation goes away saying, not, “What a lovely sermon!” but, “I will do something!”

 - Francis de Sales

Pray Together with Us
O Lord, give us more charity, more self-denial, more likeness to you. Teach us to sacrifice our comforts to others and our likings for the sake of the good. Make us kindly in thought, gentle in word, generous in deed. Teach us that it is better to give than to received, better to forget ourselves than to put ourselves forward, better to minister than to be ministered unto. And to you, the God of Love, be all glory and praise, now and forever.

 -Henry Alford (1810-1871)
New Every Morning: a daily (M-F) encouragement resource for clergy that includes a scriptural start for the day, a thought from a brother/sister of the faith, and a prayer to enrich the service of the minister. It is an inner life component of the Soul Care ministry of the Church of the Nazarene's Clergy Development Office.
— Dr. Daniel Copp, director
