It is entirely possible to over plan, over think, over prepare in life but never get to the execution stage. There is something about the human condition – fear is what it’s called – that keeps us stuck in the ditch of never actually going for it. I see this continually in the area of outreach when coming alongside of leaders. We demand perfection before we start to move out. We feel we are somehow going to be judged harshly is we don’t hit it out of the ballpark with the thing we are considering doing. Nothing could be further from the truth. Live by the adage “Don’t let the fact that you can’t do everything stop you from doing something.”
It’s time to lay down our conditions for obedience. It’s time to go for it. The time is short on all accounts. Life is over in a flash. Jesus’ return is emminant. People are suffering now.
