Ministry Versus Job

Some people have a job in the Church and others are invited into a ministry.
What is the difference?
If you’re doing it just because no one else will, it’s a job.
If you’re doing it to serve the Lord, it’s a ministry.
If you quit because someone criticizes you, it’s a job.
If you keep serving, it’s a ministry.
If you’ll do it as long as it doesn’t interfere with your other activities, it’s a job.
If you are committed to staying, even if it means letting go of other things, it’s a ministry.
If you quit because no one thanked you or praised you, it’s a job.
If you stick with it, even though no one recognized your efforts, it’s a ministry.
It’s hard to get excited about a job.
It’s almost impossible to NOT get excited about a ministry.
If your concern is success, it’s a job.
If your concern is faithfulness and service, it’s a ministry.
If God calls you to a ministry, don’t treat it like a job!

-       Fr. Gary Faust, pastor St. Bernadette in the Diocese of St. Louis
