Big Fear #2

Though I am not that old, I have lived long enough to see men build a ministry that is a monument to their gifts, their drives, and their vanity. I have also seen the disaster that awaits them at home in the form of a passionless "ministry marriage" and children they do not know. What a tragedy for both that family and the Church! I pray that God will protect me from succeeding at all the wrong things, for in the words of the great philosopher Ferris Bueller:
Life comes at you fast. You don't want to miss it.
