What would Jesus say?

If Jesus hosted a conference for pastors, what would he say to them?

My guess is that it would go something like this:

Do not worry about your ministry: how many people you have in the seats or how big your budget is. Is not the Kingdom more important than statistics? Who of you by worrying can add a single name to the book of life? Why do you worry about buildings? Have you not seen the Grand Canyon which is more majestic than any cathedral? Why do you worry about budgets and offerings? The pagans run after these things. But your heavenly Father knows what you need. Instead, seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Do not worry about results. The results will take care of themselves.

You cannot serve two masters. You cannot serve both God and success.

So what do you think?
