If you are doing it just because of no one else, its a job.
If you are doing it to serve the Lord, its a ministry.
If you quit because somebody criticized you, it was a job.
If you keep on serving, its a ministry.
If you'll do it only as long as it does not interfere with your other activities, its a job.
If you are committed to staying with it even when it means letting go of other things, its a ministry.
If you quit because no one praised you or thanked you, it was a job.
If you stay with it even though nobody recognizes your efforts, it is a ministry.
It's hard to get excited about a job. It's almost impossible not to be excited about a ministry.
If our concern is a success, its a job. If our concern is faithfulness, its a ministry.
An average church is filled with people doing jobs.
A great and growing church is filled with people involved in ministry.
