Let it die

Kill it or keep going. In the business world the decision to kill a project is very difficult. Business “shrinks” call it “escalation of commitment”. With just a little more work we can fix this thing. We’re this far into it, we’ve got to make this work. We have a lot of man hours behind this effort. What will the guy upstairs say if we pull the plug on this one? We can never get funding again….

What about churches? Have you seen the same mindset applied to “sacred cows” in your church that should have been killed, but you keep seeing more time, more money, more resources, more calendar thrown at them to prop them up for one more year? Wonder what the guy upstairs thinks when he sees us being bad stewards of His resources.
