Firing an Organization
Do people ever fire companies? According to John G. Miller, they do. As a matter of fact, you have done it too. Have you ever had a bad experience at a restaurant, hotel, or a retailer and vowed never to eat, stay, or shop there again? You fired them! I don’t know about you, but I never want anyone to fire the organization (ministry) that I work for. We often think of “firing” in terms of individuals, but let’s be reminded that it happens to organizations each and every day.
I always seek to honor the Lord by excelling in my work and I know that you carry the same attitude. It would pain me to know that my attitude, my practices, my competence, or any other factor would place me in jeopardy of being fired. But do I ever consider that someone may be considering firing the organization (ministry) that I serve? John G. Miller points out that while people fire organizations, they do not fire OUTSTANDING ones. I believe the goal for all of us should be to make our ministries and organizations outstanding. I work for a great ministry. But, we know it can be even greater because everyone on our team has room to grow. How about yours?
