Thought for the Day

“We should spend more time figuring out how to create a wider front door instead of focusing on how we can "close the back door"… even if that means losing people who give us a lot of money [there, I said it].”

This is part of a post over at Catalystspace entitled “10 Things That Drive Me Crazy About Working For A Church.”

This is something I’ve been concerned with in my years as pastor. It’s so easy to get wrapped up in trying to appease some. Doing so always results in the neglect of others.

Αυτω η δοξα,

  1. Amen, that is the hard truth. The reason that pastor’s and church leaders do this is that we often try to appease man instead of trying to please God. It doesn’t matter how godly the people we are trying to please may be, we must always first seek to please God. The church exists for Christ’s glory, not for the church’s glory.
