We all need to find our calling and serve the Lord in whatever unique way he created us to serve. That may be in a way that others consider ordinary, but that doesn’t matter. Serving is about pouring yourself out, so being able to continue to serve in the long term is about pouring something back in.

That’s bound to involve prayer, it certainly will involve good fellowship, mentoring, time in the Word, and worship. It will also involve loafing on a couch now and then, doing fun stuff, and spending time with your spouse and/or family. Balance opens the door to longevity, and allows you to see the big picture.
