Too Many Churches Are Pursuing the Wrong Measures of Success


“God does not measure success in the same way we do. It is often through what appears to be the greatest human failures and tragedies that God is most directly at work bringing about his sovereign purposes for his church and for us.”

Rethinking the Successful Church,
by Samuel d. Rima, p. 58

Too many churches are measuring success by budgets, buildings, and bodies in the buildings, instead of people care, faithfulness to the word of God, and clarity of the gospel. But God has his own plans. God has his own measures.

We would be wiser to follow his plans than our own.
