POST OF THE WEEK

Is Your Church Healthy? by Tim Challies

I’m curious to know how you might go about evaluating the spiritual health of the congregation? Here’s the key; are there objective ways of identifying whether a congregation is growing or stagnant and is there a clear set of biblical markers or indicators that you would use to assess whether the congregation is spiritually healthy?

TIP OF THE WEEK

Start with the Big Rocks First.

The rock jar is an illustration I have seen used before.  The concept is that if you had all types of different rocks that you tried to fit into a jar, you need to start with the big ones first, then you stack in medium rocks in open spaces, then you can fill in with small rocks and gravel.  If you start with the smaller ones first, you can’t get any big rocks in.

Many people struggle with their schedules or priorities like that.  They fill up their calendars with all the smaller, less important things that they can’t put in the most important.  As an individual, family, or team, start with the big rocks first.  Put on the most important things and then see what else can fit in.
