THE TRAGEDY OF FULL TIME MUSIC MINISTRY

"The greatest frustration in life is to be neck deep in a career or a profession that cannot feed you" (Asu Ekiye) "Any job you do, no matter how passionate, that can not sustain ur livelihood will ultimately become your 'misery-hood' " (Asu Ekiye) "Every hungry man will minister anger if the hunger has gained stubborn reality." (Asu Ekiye)

The bible says that the talent or gift is given to every man to profit withal .. (1cor 12:4)

Talent is a skill or an ability that someone is born with. Every talent given to man is first for impact and also for survival. The parable of the talents in (mathew 25:14-30) is emphatic about the essence of a talent and the need for each talent to be optimized. Any talent that impacts men and not impact the impacter is an anathema.
Calling yourself a FULL TIME Music Minister without a full time income from music, is what I call the paradox of false air of occupational contentment. There is no pastor, no matter how full of faith, that has remained a pastor without a reasonable basis to guarantee that his livelihood is sustainable by the proceeds from the altar. There are too many frustrated people in the music ministry, falsely motivated and on a wrong trajectory of doing music full time when they should be erking out great living with some profitable ventures.
It is for this reason that this write up has become necessary .

Music is not the GIFT OF THE SPIRIT.. Music is a TALENT. What is the difference ?
The gifts of the spirit is an exclusive preserve of the believer...1cor:12:4-11. Only believers can be blessed with the gifts of the spirit because they are spiritually allocated and distributed. But talents are for every human being.
Whereas the gift of the spirit is for believers, talents are for both believers and unbelievers. Eg. Sports , entertainment, oratory etc. But the irony is that the unbelievers or secular practitioners have preponderantly made a huge capital from their talent than the believers. Because they understand the terrain of talent more than the believers. Music first begins as a talent and when the possessor is faithful in the stewardship of the talent, God calls such a person specifically to a higher service in music according to the order of the Levitical priesthood.
