Staying the Course

Posted on April 21, 2014 in General Ministry, Management, MMI | 0 comments

One of the things that I have learned over the years in ministry is that things happen, sometimes even shock you.  These kind of things magnify themselves when working in ministry as there is a basic perception that people you have worked with in ministry are good people, with good intentions.  For the most part, they are good people, but their perceptions of how a ministry must operate cause them to cause more chaos than those in ministry leadership would prefer.

This is an example of satan working behind the scenes to create confusion and cause deceit.  Many want to try and take on this deceit, but it has been proven that those that seek to cause chaos will be exposed for who they are in the long run.  The biggest challenge a ministry must face is to stay the course and don’t waste time allowing this confusion to throw the ministry out of its focus on serving the less fortunate.

It’s not an easy thing to do as many want to take on those that try to cause the confusion and get into a debate.  Unfortunately, this just plays into the hands of those trying to disrupt the effort.  The best way to deal with these types of issues is continue to be who you say you are and let the rest sort itself out.  It’s not an easy course to take, but in the end, it keeps the ministry from wasting God’s resources and time on things that do nothing but take away from His ministry.

The next time you find yourself in a time of chaos, take a step back, who is causing this chaos and distance yourself from them.  Your time is too valuable and why waste time on distractions.  The truth will eventually come forth and those that seek to cause problems will be revealed for who they are.
