I am often reminded of how complicated life is and how it often carries over to our local church and its ministry. Why does it have to be this way? Why do we get so busy? How do we keep it simple or as I like to say, “Keep the Main Thing, the Main THING?”
I would like to offer up just a couple simple thoughts about keeping it simple:
1) Stay focused on what really matters. You don’t have to do everything that everyone else is doing. What matters most to you? Then focus on that and do it with quality and passion.
2) Learn to say NO! Yes, you can say NO! Learn to do it. Practice with me right now… say NO! come one out loud. NO! It feel good, NO?
3) Stay simple; Do a few things great rather than a bunch of things with only mediocre results. Figure out your basic priorities and stick with them. When you focus on keeping it simple it prevents you from going off in the wrong directions or taking ministry “rabbit trails.”
So Keep it simple.. How do you keep it simple? What advice would you give!
