Size Matters Little

Failure and Success

No man is worthy to succeed until he is willing to fail. No man is morally worthy of success in religious activities until he is willing that the honor of succeeding should go to another if God so wills.

Failure and Success: Size Matters Little

And He said to them, ""You are those who justify yourselves before men, but God knows your hearts. For what is highly esteemed among men is an abomination in the sight of God.""

Luke 16:15

To God quality is vastly important and size matters little. When set in opposition to size, quality is everything and size nothing….

Man’s moral fall has clouded his vision, confused his thinking and rendered him subject to delusion. One evidence of this is his all but incurable proneness to confuse values and put size before quality in his appraisal of things. The Christian faith reverses this order, but even Christians tend to judge things by the old Adamic rule. How big? How much? and How many? are the questions oftenest asked by religious persons when trying to evaluate Christian things….

The Church is dedicated to things that matter. Quality matters. Let’s not be led astray by the size of things. Born After Midnight, 72-73,75.

""Have we completely forgotten this, Lord, that ‘quality is everything and size nothing’? Encourage all those pastors who are discouraged today because they don’t match up to the ‘success’ of the big churches. Amen.""

On this day...
