Being effective and efficient comes at a cost.
Life, truly can be and seem like a math problem.
Decisions are weighed by opportunities, available resources, people's schedules and the balance of one's bank account. What's most effective may not be the most efficient. What's the most efficient usually gives up even more in effectiveness. Pursuing both often comes at a greater cost... one that could be hard to justify depending on the final factor... bank accounts balances.
And just when you think you have it figured out... the brake shop installing the brake kit for your car calls and tells you the pads and rotors are the wrong size. Excellent! And of course, the shipper isn't open on the weekends, so now I'm stuck waiting until tomorrow to sort this out.
So much for being efficient... that plan backfired. And effectiveness waits a few more days as well.
These are difficult moments... frustrating enough as an individual. More-so as an organization.
Sorting and navigating the process is taxing; requiring prayer, determination and strength from On High.
Pray, this #effectiveSunday, for churches and leadership for the decisions and challenges they face. May today be a day of effectiveness for the cause of Jesus Christ. Pray God would help churches to make wise decisions as they steward their resources, of time, talent and treasure. May the moments of frustration, when circumstances don't appear to be working as well as they should or matters take a turn for re-evaluation; pray a grace and a covering as God gives direction and strength to move forward. Pray the church would not rely on their own strength, or that of it's people or position; but empowered by the strength of the Holy Spirit.
Stewards for the cause of Christ
Effective and efficient for the glory of God.
