These posts are adapted from Donald Keough’s excellent book The Ten commandments for Business Failure. This book was such an excellent source of common sense and probably one of the best books I’ve read in some time.
When it comes to failure, the best thing you can do is be intimidated by what might happen. It will paralyze you and your church, motivating you to defend where you are rather than take the position you need to be in.
When people are afraid of the future, they will do anything to push the present. They will want today to be tomorrow. They will want tomorrow to look just like yesterday. And that will guarantee that you will fail. Even if you can manage to keep going in the present, you will have failed anyway. You will have become a time capsule of yesterday.
Go for it.
Of course, Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever. Wait…isn’t forever in the future?
