“Very few pastors are actually called by God to work in large settings among wealthy people with huge, almost limitless resources. Most of us are asked to dig in with the poor and disheartened, with limited space, money and resources. That’s where Jesus and most of the early apostles spent the bulk of their time, so why should we expect different? According to the passage I just quoted, Paul had his share of both, and found that Christ gave him the strength to meet the challenges of each.”
