Don’t Do Stupid

When things are going well in the life of a church – the giving is good, the church board is healthy, the vision is clear, there is growth and vitality, etc. – there are two sets of people who can derail all the great things God is doing: Staff and leaders.

It’s amazing how arduous, time-consuming, difficult it is to be in a position where growth and health is present. It takes years to build such an ethos and environment. And one person, with one stupid act, can derail the entire thing in minutes.

This typically happens in three arenas: money, sex, and relationships.

The Little Church on the Prairie finds herself in a healthy place. We are positioned for God to do some amazing things in the future.

I have been reminding both the staff and the elders, and most importantly me, “Please don’t do stupid things. Be pure and God-honoring in our dealing with God’s money, sex, and relationships with one another.”

    Hi James – hope you are well – glad you are blogging again – afraid I’m finding the thin, gray font difficult to read. But then, I’m old enough to be your sister (lol)

    Hi Deb! Good to hear from you. I changed the font. Hope that’s easier on the eyes. Hope you and Chris are well!
