Another common temptation of ministry success is “good opportunities.”
As God blesses your student ministry, kids’ ministry, or church, others will want to learn from you. Before you know it, you might have a few good opportunities. You might have an opportunity to write a book, or teach at a conference, or consult for a local church across town.
While you certainly don’t want to be selfish with the wisdom God’s given you, too many “good opportunities” can cause you to take your “eye off the ball.”
A wise leader will plan some boundaries to avoid the temptation of too many good opportunities.
