There is always something that needs (or that we want) to be done. There are so many choices to be made. There are tons of options. When it comes to going to church, we can find reasons to stay at home, go on a trip, or just plain not go. We hear you that your struggle is real. But why should we go?
Faith was never meant to be a lone pursuit.
It’s easy to focus on the negative.
Maybe it’s just my personality that causes my drift in that direction, but for me, the sound level of complaints seems to carry far above any other level of positive communication that could be happening in that moment. Sadly, it has been the reason for many discouraging days in ministry, not just for me, but for many pastors.
