I probably did one of the dumbest things in my life this past Friday. I decided to pickle peppers (habaneros) without any gloves. I’ve handled hot peppers before but I neglected to study the instructions, which clearly says, “Don’t pickle hot peppers without gloves.” My fingers went numb for about 12 hours and the only way to soothe them was to hold on to an icepack. Not wearing gloves was a simple mistake that lead to big consequences. I just wasn’t paying enough attention.
- The Vision – With no vision we have no idea where we are heading. Your ministry just becomes a program.
- The Team – We forget that others make us stronger; therefore, we forget to thank them, lift them up and encourage them along the path we’re leading them down. We lose sight of them, they will lose you.
- God – Whether it’s pride or tricks from the devil, we lose sight of God which causes us to doubt our purpose. Lose your purpose you gain frustration.
