Hey all -
I need your advice and prayers.
I recently got into an altercation with my Sunday school steward. We are not seeing eye-to-eye on something I consider a serious issue. I don't wish to discuss that specific problem but the problem underlying it.
That problem is, I think, I have become terrible with authority - questioning the decisions of the leaders, believing them to be doing things incorrectly or not diligently enough. I was humbled in my altercation with my steward for he revealed to me the very same flaws I found in others, in myself.
I am at a point where I feel I cannot serve and am unfit for service. I know my FoC will tell me to continue to serve but I don't think I should.
I feel like the service is hindering my spiritual life and that I am missing the humble spirit that is a prerequisite to serving.
What do you all think: Is time away from service a good idea? How long should I take a break?
