The more I live, the more I am convinced that:
1.) Know what and who you represent
2.) Understand the mission of the organization or church/ministry you belong to
3.) Never represent what you cannot believe
4.) Think “we” and not “me”
5.) Question your motives for doing things. It really helps.
5.) NEVER undermine who or what you claim to represent
I came to these principles just moderating a message board but I believe they are also transferable principles that operate in the kingdom of God. There are plenty of folks running around claiming to the know the truth but the lives, in the words of the late great musical prophet Keith Green, “don’t match up.” May it never be so with us.
