Music ministers are leaders in the truest form that have the tendancy to command attention to get the job done. Consequently, we sometimes become "self-centered" by skewed motivation. Let me offer the extraordinary wisdom of Lao Tzo, of non-Christian persuasion, that will help keep us reminded of our true purpose - to serve:
"A leader is best when people barely know he exists, not so good when people obey and acclaim him, worse when they despise him....
But of a good leader who talks little when his work is done, his aim fulfilled, they will say,
“We did it ourselves."
The ultimate goal of a music minister is to "invoke" participation (worship) so that GOD gets the glory. Thus, due service is rendered.
