  1. I once heard Derek Webb say, “Loving people is not efficient.”

    That has always stuck with me and challenged me.

  2. um, I think you forgot BLOGGING in your daily schedule.

  3. Glad to hear that! Very efficient.

    And thanks for this post. What a great reminder that “people are the mission.”

    Thanks Danny, I had a day of interruption, was grumping, and now my head is back somewhat on track. (ps., it happens to those not in formal ministry too)

    I gotta say this is great for me to hear. My daily ministry is my kids and home. Sometimes I get too focused on that home, and get very annoyed by being interrupted by those needy boogers. I need to remember those kids are my mission field and are way more important than my cleaning schedule for the day 🙂 Thanks, Danny!
