The enemy of the Great Commission is the perfect plan. The best way to make a difference in people’s lives is to find a need and set out to meet that need.
Many ministries are hindered by prolonged meetings in the conference room talking about all the things that could wrong, or either over-administrating a new initiative before it’s even started! I can tell you for certain that a lot of things will go wrong when you do outreach. Why? Because we are dealing with hurting people who have needs. That gets messy.
The better question is: “What could go right?” I’ve seen a lot of people get helped and a lot get accomplished for God’s kingdom through efforts that looked like organized chaos.
NEVER LET THE PERFECT PLAN TAKE YOU AWAY FROM PERFECT LOVE.
