7 Things I Learned This Week

1. “It ain’t over until it’s over.”

Sarah Palin has made the race a choice of gender, as well as race. The choice could come down, for some of us, to what’s more important: philosophy, race, gender?

2. In order to get some things done you must have a strategy to do them.

3. Good leaders read books that relate to reaching younger people, not just baby boomers.

4. The hospital is still a tough place to be in.

5. All of life comes down to making disciples. All else is not as important.

6. A good small group or Sunday School class requires more than teaching.

7. The way you coach your kids impacts their identity.

    I appreciate this comment the most: “In order to get some things done you must have a strategy to do them.” I agree and have accomplished much by seeking God’s direction in putting a long range strategy together to grow the ministry of prayer in a congregation. Unfortunately some think of this in a negative way. Call it being “program” led. I think that’s a very narrow minded point of view, recognizing that in order to do something well you must purpose yourself to do it, to be equipped and strategize a way to accomplish the goal God puts before you. To me, that’s what it is to “run the race.”

    Strategy is different from program. Strategy is the steps to get there. Program is what you have when you get there. Most of the time program reaches it’s destiny and there’s not further plan to strategize forward. Programs rarely move. Strategy is always moving.

    Without vision, people cast off parameters.
