#45: How to honor the service of ministry and still bring in an income



How do you honor the service of ministry when you are helping people who are struggling and still bring in an income?

This question recently came up in my coaching group. We divided this into categories to take bite-sized pieces to talk about and work out a solution.

We speak about ministry and the critical components of ministry such as helping, service, and struggling. How can you help? By doing good to others by letting your life be a light, an example to others. Teach others how to invest in themselves and why investing in yourself is essential. Giving your services away for free does not assist them in the necessary growth process. Allow the power of investment to move through to your clients.

Tune into the episode to listen to the details of these stories and more. Addressing solutions to these struggles is the way to find freedom and growth for you and your clients without feeling resentment and burnout.
