I have been a Christian for over 43 years and a pastor for a little less than 30 years. I recently attended a conference, and a series of breakout sessions taught me things I had never learned. Quite honestly, I had never really even given their topic much thought until this year.
While sitting in one session, I quietly bowed my head and said a prayer of apology to God. I am such a horrible pastor. How have I read the Scripture all these years and never noticed this? How could I have been a pastor this long and not considered doing this?
I want everyone to know: I am still learning. After all this time, there is still much to learn about God, his word, and his people.
One day I hope to know all that I should, but until then, I will keep adding a little bit every day until the day God makes my knowledge complete in his presence.
