those that go before us

i just got in from a lot of meetings this week with the denomination i'm a part of - gotta say, this year was one of the best. the teaching line up, while not world renowned, nor world famous, they are all world changers - i've been blessed this week. today was the annual 'business session' - it's a love-hate thing, i hate going, i love leaving. but today, the thought really struck me as a scanned the crowd - there are a lot of guys (and ladies) that have gone before me to pave the way to where we are today. i hope i never get critical or cynical because of a person's age, tenure in ministry, longevity at a church, or length of credentialing - truly, they served God in their generation (and still do!), it's my responsibility to receive the baton and serve God in my generation...

to those that have gone before me, my gratitude is expressed and my prayer is that you'll continue to be a trail-blazer in year's to come - may i do the same...
