We had an incredible time at Disney with the kids. I couldn’t believe how smoothly the trip went. Jenni’s planning helped us make the most of each day. Emma was young enough to be thrilled by the princesses and fairy tales, but old enough to ride space mountain, the tower of terror, and the rock and roller coaster. Luke did a great job conquering some of his fears and enjoyed riding Pirates of the Caribbean and Drew had a great time in the Buzz Lightyear ride. I’m really proud of them for handling all the walking and bus riding.
We also got to experience the Disney customer service first hand. I couldn’t help but ask myself the question, do we as churches take care of our visitors and guests the same way?
If their cast members have great enthusiasm about helping everyone in the park, then why do we have so many people in churches that are miserable and unwilling to serve or help?
If they are excited about working for a mouse, then why can’t we be excited about working for the KING OF KINGS! I’m not suggesting that we cater to every whim and desire of everyone who walks in the door, I’m just saying that we need to be concerned about our attitude and we need to recognize who we are serving and why we are serving. That realization changes everything.
