Wearing Hats

I have to wear a lot of hats as a junior high pastor. Right now my schedule is packed with the "summer camp program director" hat.

Making sure cabins are assigned correctly, recreation has all the supplies, the speaker and worship band are ready, the T-Shirts are ordered, the camp handbooks are printed properly, the meeting hall will meet fire code with the amount of students we pack into it, etc.

I have to consciously remind myself to take the "program director" hat off in order to put on the hats that are life-giving and God-given: the "pastor/shepherd" hat, the "husband" hat, the "father" hat.

More than anything, I need to constantly be fitting the "child of God" hat in its proper place, not letting it slip from my head...or my heart.

What hat is taking up the majority of your thoughts/time/energy?
