This side of eternity, healthy relationship are healthy because the people living in those relationships approach them with a ministry mentality. You never wake up to a world that has been freed from the Fall, and you never spend time with people who have escaped the curse of sin. Because of this, ministry is not something you can relegate to an area of your life or a formal slot on your schedule. No, you and I must enter each situation of life with a ministry mentality.
Broken-Down House, Paul David Tripp, p. 195.
