Do you have anyone who will be honest with you?

I ask this, because I see a big difference between someone who is honest with me, and someone who loves me for who I am. My wife is honest with me. I have been fortunate to be home away from the office over the last week, because of our new baby, and spend some time with her.

Ask someone who loves you who you are: "how do you think our worship time went last week?" This person responds by saying: "I can tell you really tried to put a lot of effort into that song/worship set." My wife however will say: "Don't you think you could have put more effort into that song/worship set?"

The evaluation is basically the same, but the implications for future weeks is much different altogether. Find someone who will be honest with you - it will change the way you look at your own ministry.
