I love a thought expressed by Henry Ford, “Don’t find fault; find a remedy.” In the sports world, we find more than a few “arm-chair” quarterbacks, coaches, and officials. We seem to believe we have a better understanding and view of how the game should be played in the comfort of our home, as opposed to the heat of the battle on the field.
The church often follows the same pattern. If we are not careful, we can easily find more faults with the church than can ever be solved. However, recognizing areas of concern or fault does not change anything. It is time we stand up and present a solution. Perhaps, we might modify the thought by saying, “Don’t find fault, unless you plan to present a remedy.”
