I will admit it… I am an armchair quarterback – after all I played football my freshmen year in Highschool –
I will watch a highly skilled, trained professional quarterback and question his play, his decisions and even his abilities.
As a young Christian I would do the same thing with the pastor or leaders of the church. I am not saying that there is never a time to question or be concerned about, We all need to be discerning and wise but having a critical spirit is detrimental to all.
It’s easier to think you would do it better.
It’s easy to criticize the quarterback when you’ve never even put on cleats –
Criticism is easier than contribution –
If you see a problem, whether it’s in your church, job are somewhere else – are you quick to criticize?
To point out the problems is easy. To help solve the problems is more difficult –
Perhaps God has highlighted an issue to you because He wants you to be part of the solution.
Get out of the easy chair and on to the playing field –
Support your leaders and do all you can to help the entire team succeed
