Bad Preaching

I preached this last Sunday in a small country church. I enjoy the smaller groups because I feel like I’m connecting with people. I did something that I never wanted to do. I did a poor job of preparation. There were lots of people who told me they enjoyed the message, and I was invited back, but I know that I didn’t give the sermon my highest priority. I hate it when preachers have 5 minutes of real content hiding amongst 25 minutes of filler. I’m afraid I was guilty of that this week. I approached my ministry opportunity as if it were some mundane task. I imagine that is a subtle danger in ministry.
