I want to caution my fellow bloggers against becoming too important in your own eyes. Why? Because it hurts your testimony. Let’s discuss…
Recently you may have noticed my humor bit about Perry Noble. He actually told his congregation that he was not interested in being the type of pastor who rubs elbows with his people. Many pastors are like that these days.
Are we (bloggers or pastors) ever too busy or too cool to associate with regular folks? We shouldn’t be. If we are then we simply pontificate and our usefulness diminishes.
I sent emails to several bigwigs in the blog world earlier this year asking to do interviews with them. They all quickly and heartily agreed. Many of them however would not answer subsequent emails or attempts at setting up the interviews.
They would not answer to something they had already agreed to do. This is most rude and self-absorbed. I understand that time does not permit answering every email, phone call, or interview request. But, when you agree to do something, you should at least have the decency to notify the person if you can no longer fulfill your committment.
I have lost some respect for some folks. It is sad because we have enough trouble from the enemy digging at us that we do not need to contribute to any lessening of our own reputations.
Let’s keep a grip, people. None of us are that important. God can replace any or all of us with rocks and get just as much done…
Tough love from the Truthinator
