Quotes to Consider:
Prof. Herman Hanko: "So often our attitude
towards the church is one of selfishness ... The whole church does not
revolve around whether you are edified or not. If you are, that is good.
You must be. If you take a proper attitude towards the preaching of the
word, you will be. And if you dedicate yourself to the church, blessings
will flow to you and to your family. But it is not all about you. It is
not a personal matter that involves your own personal feelings and
judgments. It is the church; it is the cause of God and of Christ. It is
the cause of His covenant, which is far, far greater and far more
important than your personal edification or mine" (Keeping
God’s Covenant, pp. 27-28).
