Religious and secular articles, books, and posts abound in the field of excellence. Sadly, we live in a time where too many seek to do as little as possible and it has influenced Christians.
Whatever happened to the mindset of excellence, the desire to go above and beyond, to do something well because it is the right thing to do?
Maybe it’s the current culture, the next generation, but why?
Why is it allowed?
Why is it easier to go with the flow?
Why are we comfortable with the status quo?
The church is the bride of Christ and the opportunity to share in this glorious union is the greatest of privileges. To understand God’s grace is to pursue excellence.
We are too comfortable with sitting in the pew week after week hearing sermon after sermon only to make no changes from the week before.
It is time leaders set a better example, to live consistent with their expectations of others, and to motivate followers by working beside them in the trenches instead of lording over them.
Anything worth doing is worth doing right and anything worth doing right is worthy of excellence.
