Appearances aren’t everything.
If you’re reading this, you’re likely the “go-to” person for youth ministry in your church. Maybe I’m wrong, but play along with me for a moment.
Now let’s take a quick rabbit trail.
I was looking for an image recently using the keyword “expert.”
Google is normally my friend for this, but in this particular instance I came up short.
Google Images essentially told me that in all of the Internet’s pages, there was no picture that matched this word.
First off, that’s never, ever happened to me before.
Secondly, I found it completely satirical that this was the word Google said couldn’t be matched to anything that represented it.
I thought it might’ve been a fluke, so I typed in searches using other words. They all showed up, but again and again for more than 20 minutes, I couldn’t get an image for the word “expert.”
That all changed when I tried it again an hour later. But for a brief moment in time, there was no “expert” to be found.
Now… how does that relate to you?
Or, should you help someone else become the expert on youth ministry (or whatever your area of responsibility is) in your church?
For that matter, should anyone be an expert… or should we all be learners?
Well, what do you know?
