Stephen Covey has said that, "The main thing is to keep the main thing the win thing". I often find myself knowing what the "main thing" is, but get distracted trying to figure out how to get the "main thing" done. Soon I am caught up in the process trying to remember why I am doing what I am doing.
The challenge from The Bible to all believers is to "go and make disciples". I think we, too often, spend time and effort creating programs and theories to do that, but then we soon forget the "main thing" - making disciples - and spend all our time and effort keeping the program running that was created to make disciples.

One of the misconceptions about the idea of becoming a Church of Excellence is that it has to be perfect. Wrong! Perfectionist have the idea that nothing is ever good enough. Nothing is ever completed because, "there's got to be a better way, a faster way, a cheaper way, etc." Well I'm here to tell you that God wants souls to turn to Him. Excellence is us giving our best with what we have. People's changed hearts is the goal!
