What happens when – instead of playing to win – you play not to lose? You lose. You abandon the strategies that earned your success in the first place and you become too cautious. You don’t take a sufficient amount of risk… and it costs you. I haven’t read the Denver papers, but I’m sure there are many comments criticizing the coach for not using the strengths the team had.
My question for you, whether you’re in Denver or not, in what ways might the above description apply to your church or ministry?
So my sympathies to the Denver fans. There’s always next year. Signed – the guy in LA who doesn’t have his own football team to critique
