It’s not about the numbers

29 Feb

“God’s job is to worry about the number of sheep. Your job is to feed the sheep.”

That the advice Pastor Tim Counts’ grandfather gave him after Tim was discouraged by the low attendance for a Wednesday night Bible study. It is part of a helpful article entitled, “Brothers, preach your heart out–No matter how few people are in the room.” I found it a good reminder as I prepare to preach tomorrow.

    Such a wonderful encouragement, thank you for that reminder…I think when we become focused on the numbers we fall trap to the temptation to alter the message and make it receivable to carnally mined people. Let’s preach truth no matter the attendance, there’s more rejoicing over one repentant sinner!
