Worship Leaders – What Do YOU Think?
In most everything else in life, I want to hear words of encouragement from people based on the things I do.
“Great job! Way to go! You really nailed that! That (looks, sounds, smells, _______ ) great!”
It isn’t surprising – after all, one of my “love languages” is “Words of Affirmation” so it doesn’t surprise me in the slightest that I crave hearing someone tell me I’ve done a great job.
So here is my question…
Why am I so bothered when someone tells me “great job!” or “your worship was AWESOME this morning!” or anything else trully positive about a worship service?
I mean, seriously? Am I the only one who feels this way? It is trully hard for me to take a compliment in this area. I would much rather hear “you really helped me connect to God today” or “I could really feel God’s presence today.”
I am well aware that no one means anything wrong by it…and no one is wrong by offering compliments…but am I the only one who feels a little out of place by hearing them?
