I have two summer interns working under me this summer creating and providing leadership for our youth program, sports camp, weekend camp, and volunteer supervision. They started yesterday and today I came across this quote which I thought was something valuable for all of us who work in an office environment.
“You’re almost guaranteed trouble if you come to the office without a plan for the day. It’s amazing how time slides by and, to your dismay, you discovered you haven’t accomplished anything close to six hours’ worth of results from your day’s activities. Ministry is not about us simply putting our time in at the office.” Ginny Olson, Diane Elliot and Mike Work, Youth Ministry Management Tools. Grand Rapids: Zondervan, 2001. 73.
Let’s make sure we plan and thereby use our time wisely and accomplish as much as possible for the Kingdom.
