When someone says, “full-time ministry,” we automatically assume this refers to a person who makes their living from being in the ministry. By taking this train of thought, by default, we put everyone else in the category of NOT being in full-time ministry.
Just because you work a secular job, are a stay at home mom, in the military, or even unemployed, realize that YOU ARE IN FULL TIME MINISTRY.
The word “minister” is just a fancy word for servant, and we are all servants of the LORD.
Know that ministering to your family is an honorable vocation, as well as serving your country, or working your job, or whatever it is you are doing, as long as you approach it as a servant of the Lord, as His representative, doing it with all your heart.
Colossians 3:23 ~ And whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men,
