In the end, it’s all about people. Whether sending them on ahead of us, or leaving a legacy they can benefit from and follow in our footsteps, people are the only thing we can take with us. Because they’re the only thing on the planet that will last forever.
Understanding this does not diminish the need for natural excellence – like how our church carpets are groomed, how are ministries are run, or how the community thinks about our organizations – but actually increases the importance of our behaviors, as they ultimately equate to affecting people.
All that being said, however, it’s imperative we keep majoring on – well – the majors.
