Today at Summit Church we had what we call a day of honor. We invited the leaders of our community to join us for our worship experience and honored them.
Most importantly we prayed for them and committed to be there for them as a church. I was so proud of our church this morning.
The thing that stood out to me today was how appreciative the leaders were and it dawned on me that city leaders often hear complaints, frustrations, and fears of people, but how often do they hear, “we appreciate you” “thank you for your sacrifice.”
I believe our church today did just that as they rose in applause of our leaders.
After service leader after leader said thank you and the look on their face was one of refreshing. That’s what appreciation does, it refreshes you.
Lets work to honor leadership in our lives and continue a culture of honor into the next generation.
