When Counting Costs
Mike Schrage, Executive Director
Most of us have heard the phrase “by the numbers.” For us in leadership (if I’m being totally transparent, I should say for me) “by the numbers” many times forces me to feel more or less acceptable before my heavenly Father, and that, my friend, is really a lie!
I struggle with wanting affirmation from within myself, from my wife, from my peers, from strangers, and from God. When the numbers are good, life is good; when the numbers are bad, life is bad! This reaction gives so many false readings. I’d like to share this article from Carey Nieuwhof. It speaks the truth we all need to be aware of when counting costs.
