Clayton King, one of my best friends and our teaching pastor here at NewSpring Church posted this on his blog the other day…it’s amazing…and I wanted to share it here…10 ways to fail!

1. Build a great ministry while destroying a great marriage

2. Compromise my convictions in a moment of fatigue or weakness, and lose my family, my reputation, and my anointing

3. See thousands of strangers believe the gospel when I preach yet watch my own children reject the gospel when they grow up

4. Preach on being spritually healthy and vibrant while neglecting my own health for the sake of the ministry

5. Be super-productive in my daily work while never working on my own personal relationship with Jesus

6. Spend all my money and resources on my wants while neglecting the needs of my brothers and sisters, when it is in my power to help them

7. Be efficient at training and teaching others in how to do ministry but lack effectiveness in preparing my children to live for Christ as His disciples

8. Miss opportunities to bless, honor, and support other pastors and leaders because I am waiting on them to bless, honor, and notice me

9. Never have fun because I was too serious about my calling, my preaching, my writing, or my ministry responsibilities

10. Grow old without the deep, abiding love and friendships that I would miss if I never took the time to invest in people, beginning with my wife
