The Preacher's Lament

  • If I express myself on a subject, I'm trying to run things.

  • If I'm silent, I'm dumb or have lost interest.

  • If I'm often at my office (preparing messages or studying), why don't I get out and learn what's going on.

  • If I'm out when they call, why am I not tending to business, or studying for a message.

  • If I'm not at home at night, I'm out having a good time.

  • If I'm home, I'm neglecting important outside contacts and activities.

  • If I don't agree with persons, I'm bullheaded.

  • If I do agree, I don't have any ideas of my own.

  • If I don't do what I'm requested, I'm a very poor pastor or minister.

  • If I do agree, well, that's what I'm paid for.

  • If I give someone a short answer, I'm "too big for my britches."

  • If I attempt to explain the pros and cons of an issue, I'm a know-it-all.

  • If I'm well dressed, I think I'm a big shot.

  • If I'm not, I'm a poor representative of my office.

  • If I'm on the job a short time, I'm inexperienced.

  • If I've been there a long time, It's time for a change.

(Just a joke, but quite a lot of truth in it!)
