Fulltime Ministry?

We had the privilege of a passing conversation with a pastor, who is also a fulltime seminary professor. Tuck was feeling especially agreeable in that moment, which is always refreshing and especially welcome in such a conversation. While Scott talked to Tucker, he put his hand on Tucker's little arm. But Tuck maneuvered his arm so that he could hold Scott's hand instead.

Touched by Tucker's gesture, Scott said, "Tucker, you are just so loving. You're going to make a wonderful pastor someday."

Without missing a single beat, Tucker jovially shouted, "Nope!"

Fulltime ministry? Nope! No way! Not for me!! But have a blessed day, Pastor Scott!

(At least he has the gift of honesty, if not the gift of ministry.)
