It’s important for a leader to distinguish between methods and principles. Principles are closed-handed and timeless; whereas, methods are open-handed and timely. Timely methods come out of the timeless principle, but sometimes a method then becomes an idol (methodolatry) or the “only way.” And yes, Pastor Mark loves making up new words as you’ll see a few times in this piece.
What methods have become idols in your church or business?
Where do you need to have courage as a leader to approach others’ methodolatry?
Principles are timeless; methods are timely. #e412 http://jesus.to/qSE1vG
You sometimes don’t know people have idols until you take them away. #e412 http://jesus.to/qSE1vG
