“The Game Plan” movie lesson

Posted: October 25, 2007 in far from God, God, RiverPoint

The Rock is out in a new movie called The Game Plan. It’s been cut all to shreds by the critics: the storyline is too old, it’s hokey, been done too much, it’s blah, blah, blah, blah. But interestingly enough, when it came out, the movie-goers loved it and are going to see it in droves and voting with their pocketbooks.There’s a lesson to be learned from this for those of us in leadership, particularly in leadership of the church. You don’t build churches for critics. You don’t create services, programs, strategies, and marketing ideas for those around the table on Monday morning in staff meeting; even for the elders, the deacons, or the initiated.

You do what you do for those who are far from God. And if you’re not careful, you end up creating a little walled-in world that you and your small band of friends love, but no one else wants to go see or is willing to pay for.

There’s a lesson to be learned here, if we’ll learn it.
