As a kid growing up in church, all I could remember was the hypocrisy of the adults I came in contact with. From the ‘God’s gonna get you for being a sinner attitude’ to blatant favoritism and legalism, I came to a point where I wanted nothing to do with church, it’s people or God. In my immature mind it was a package deal, they were all the same thing.
The single most freeing thing I’ve done since becoming a Christ follower was to give ownership of the ministry and business to the Lord. NO, it did not happen over night, it was a process. Plus, doing so did not relieve me of my responsibilities for being a good steward or working hard with the gifts He has given me. But, it did remove the one thing the Lord tells us not to do, worry.
I believe our company is at a very critical point. As we grow and prosper, there is an inherent tendency to loose focus on how we got where we are and who brought us here. I have written before about one of my biggest fears…the fear of thinking I can do this on my own and forgetting to give glory to the Lord.
