I hate being in the middle of anything. I don't particularly like to be the center of attention, so my comfortable spot is on the sidelines. However, that's not always possible.
As a teacher, I spend most of my day trying to keep the attention of young, wandering minds. As a pastor's wife, I know that all eyes are on me and my family. During Sunday school, I sit in the middle so I can see all of those I'm teaching, and they can see me. And tomorrow, I will lead a Prayer Breakfast for the women of our church.
However, in the midst of all of this, when I seem to be the center of attention, I want all that I do and all that I say to point straight to Christ. After all, it isn't about me. It's about Him.
I want my interactions in the classroom and school building to bring Him honor and glory.
I want my behavior and attitude as a pastor's wife to never fall short of Christ-like.
I want my Sunday School class to hear Him during the lesson.
I want Him to be the center of our gathering tomorrow.
I want Him in the middle of all I do: my marriage, my family, my career....my everything.
