A spoken word from Odd Thomas on Disciple Making.
“If you fail to plan, then you plan to fail.
Ever heard that statement…?
Well this is a statement that is common among
Microsoft Excel users,
black friday consumers,
and baby boomers.
And although this statement can be considered a creative killer,
the truth is we’re failing.
We’re failing because we’re the biproduct of our culture.
We live in a fast food reality.
fly by the seat of our pants,
I’ll get to it when I get the chance
We all do it, but I wonder if we realize
that the lack of planning is simply a symptom of a greater issue among a greater system.
It’s a philosophical worldview that screams
‘I really don’t care about you
or at least I care too much for my own plans to be considerate of plans for you.’
And sometimes this seed of sin begins to manifest itself in Christian community
and as a result we are failing in our plans of evangelism and discipleship opportunity…”
