turning the world to Christ

open your eyes

Posted by dturn on November 6, 2007

I got this list of commandments from Jamey Johnson

Commandments of Current Reality – for next generation leaders:

1. Thou shalt not pretend – quit doing the “positive” churchy stuff…be real in your staff/team meetings.

2. Thou shalt not turn a blind eye – get a pair of glasses if you have to correct your sight.

3. Thou shalt not exaggerate – quit doing the “positive” churchy stuff – AGAIN!

4. Thou shalt not shoot the bearer of bad news – if the church service and strategy stinks – IT STINKS!

5. Thou shalt not hide behind the numbers – pastors and ushers never exaggerate the numbers…do they?

6. Thou shalt not ignore constructive criticism – get emotional help for your insecurity if you have to.

7. Thou shalt not isolate thyself
– FIGHT or FLIGHT? Gosh dangit, at least fight once in awhile.

If the next generation leaders could do these things…it would be AWESOME!!
