When Your Ministry Outpaces Your Character

I heard of a youth worker who led a spectacular ministry, with about 600 youth attending his group. Other youth ministers tried to emulate what he was doing, and wanted to find the secrets to his success. But today, this same youth minister lives on the streets as a cocaine addict. Beware! If our ministries outgrow our personal lives, none of us are immune from personal disaster.
