Why the  Preacher Quit 

15 03 2017


​I once heard the story of a preacher who quit the ministry after twenty years and became a funeral director. When asked why he made the change, he replied, “Well, I spent three years trying to straighten out Fred, and Fred is still an alcoholic. And I spent six months trying to straighten out Susan’s marriage, and she filed for divorce. Then I spent over two-and-a-half years trying to straighten out Bob’s drug problem, and he’s still an addict. Now at the funeral home, when I straighten them out—they stay straight.”

The growth and 

development of 

people is the highest 

calling of leadership. 

Living, breathing human beings require continual attention. And development is demanding work.
