“All things considered” is an ingredient that will tame the zing of a spicy Sunday church service.
The sermon wasn’t that bad, considering that important visit to the hospital that ate up some prep time.
The attendance at the evening service wasn’t that bad, considering it was the start of spring break.
The singing wasn’t that bad, considering we introduced that new song.
Our pride keeps us from saying, “All things considered.” We want to be so strong that ministry always goes great no matter what, and we forget that we are blessed with weaknesses so that Jesus’ strength is glorified in us by his grace.
