Those who take responsibility now, are the ones who earn leadership later.
And today’s a pretty good time to master the basic ins-and-outs, get a skeleton organization going, build the basic institutional knowledge within the church.
Because I have a deep, deep suspicion that there is going to be a LOT more poor and desperate people within the next 15 years. Certainly, after the lies of the Welfare State goes *poof*.
The poor are going to need help. And we are the ones called to offer a strong hand of assistance.
Churches – and individual Christians! – that earn their stripes in the field are nobody’s laughingstock.
