Where there are no oxen, the manger is clean, but abundant crops come by the strength of the ox. Proverbs 14:4 ESV
WOW!!!But, in order to accomplish anything great, we need people.people are messy
So he must either sacrifice successful crops for cleanliness, or sacrifice cleanliness for successful crops!
The more people that become part of our church, the more we maximize the impact and life change that our churches produce. But, it comes at the cost of being messy. Our lives are messy, and when we put them all together it creates HUGE messes. But, in the end it means greater success in what God has called us to do! Contentment with a clean, "happy" and comfortable church, means being okay with mediocrity. But a willingness to get dirty, means a willingness to achieve God's call in your life and ministry.
