Another good quote is 'The only way to serve God throughout our day is by keeping our focus on him'. Keeping our focus on Him is the key, sometimes better said than done. But it must be done.
Another good one is, "The outward significance of the work we do pales in importance to how we do it.' We/I need to always consider that when we do ministry for the Lord. Do our best in every aspect, not just throw stuff together. This is a very big deal!!
Another good one, 'Like Capernaum, we will have an outsized influence on our culture when we demonstrate a commitment to excellence and service in everything we do.'
I love the term outsized influence....when God is in it and when we do it for His glory and when we do it with all of our best efforts then God will give us an 'outsized' influence. As an individual I want that and as a leader in the church I want that for our church!!
