This is a big one.
I often hear people saying things like “that’s good enough” or “It doesn’t have to be perfect”. We have to be very careful with that attitude. We must always remember we are representing the Kingdom and God always gives us His best. We should offer Him no less than our best.
Excellence does not mean perfection and means something different in every context. What is excellent for your church could be completely different at the church down the road.
It means representing the Kingdom as well as possible with what you have. Offering our best is an act of worship in itself. Everything we do should be well thought out, well prepared, so we will represent the God we serve in the best possible way.
This could go several different ways. I would love to hear your thoughts and experiences with this idea.
