Do we use our non-profit status to settle for less than excellence in what we do?
Last weekend I was sitting through ten hours of adoption class. Saturday the instructor, bless her heart, was filling in for someone on vacation and winging it through a powerpoint presentation. It was rough. It was really rough. At one point while fiddling with the computer she made a joke under her breath about being a not-for-profit organization.
But that got me thinking. The organization I work for is a non-profit organization. I don’t have all the resources I want. Like an old foundation on a house the disease of settling creeps in.
Business as usual creeps in. Settling for mediocre creeps in because we have an excuse.
I don’t want to lead or follow Christ with that perspective. I don’t want to settle. I don’t want to use my position as full-time self-funded missionary as an excuse to settle for mediocre. I hope you don’t either.
What keeps you for settling for the status-quo?
