After attending a Christmas Eve service at church when I was little kid, my family was driving home and my mom asked the typical question to me and my brothers, "what did you boys think about the service?" In all honesty, the service was not very good. Music. Readings. Sermon. All were not presented very well. We all knew it. One of my brothers spoke up, "The pastor has all year to prepare for this one day and that is as good as he can do?! He has one job to do and he didn't do it". The church was packed. It was Christmas. Many where there for their one time a year appearance at church. The pastor had a captive audience. One would expect that this was the Superbowl for pastors (along with Easter). What went wrong? We can probably come up with a lot of reasons and excuses but the fact remains, we all have busy lives and a lot on our plate at times and we have "bad days" but we also have responsibilities. Despite all of tasks that we have to perform each day, we need to prioritize and make sure that we don't lose focus of our main "job". Some opportunities only come around occasionally and even as infrequent as once a year. We need to make sure that we treat every day as if it is game day so we don't miss out on those opportunities and so we are even more prepared for those Superbowl Sundays.
