I’m in a training seminar at Protection One this week. Today our leader quoted Jim Collins who said, “Good is the enemy of great.” Pastors and church leaders must learn this simple truth. We settle for good. We talk about excellence. We say we strive for the best.

But, here’s my question to church leaders: Are you really being honest with yourself about being great or striving for excellence? Do you ask the hard questions about what you’re doing?

Let’s get honest. God is not honored by good! He demands our best. Why, then, do we often do just enough to get by?
