“Without making disciples, all of our favorite activities—good as they are—are just so much busy work at the least, and at the worst, are a waste of time and resources.”
Chapter 15, Page 153 –
The “what” of making disciples must be at the heart and center of all our plans. Identifying and focusing on the “what” must dominate all other considerations. Every planned activity (and they should be planned) must focus – like a laser – on accomplishing the main task of making disciples. If perpetuating our favorite activity becomes more important than the main task, or if our activity consumes resources without helping to accomplish the main task, we should stop doing it, no matter how time honored or treasured or helpful it is.
As we learned from the professor, the “What” must come before and determine the “How.” Without making disciples, all of our favorite activities – good as they are – are just so much busy work at the least, and at the worst, are a waste of time and resources.
