The truth is that so often I will ignore the positive stuff, even if it is well and truly in the majority, and deal with, agonise over the one person who is critical, even if I hardly know them.
Perry Noble has a great heartfelt post and he says this,
” wish that wasn’t me. I really do wish I could let that stuff slide…but I can’t because I have dedicated my life to what we are doing…and I sincerely believe it is the right thing.
SO…because of this I have spent an unhealthy amount of time over the past year or so trying to defend what we are doing here…and in doing so I believe I have managed to convince exactly zero detractors. I have allowed the enemy to distract me and get me so unfocused–and it has done this church AND the Kingdom no good at all.”
