Thursday Three for All

It’s Thursday, kiddies: the day when I roll out a few things I’ve been reading over the past week. Three of ‘em, to be exact. Enjoy.

 

Why Kids Need to See Their Parents Serve. (via @Lifeway) Spot on counsel from Jana Magruder.

This lesson was revealed to me after hearing “No” countless times when approaching parents to serve in our children’s ministry. It wasn’t always straight-up no; but, there were plenty of versions of it. For example: “I don’t really know how to teach kids” or “Sunday mornings are our only time to worship,” or — my personal favorite — “Can’t the college kids do it?” Now, before I point the finger at any of these excuses, I must reconcile the fact that I myself have told many a children’s director the same things or hid in the bathroom until they passed by and I could make a clear getaway before being asked to teach the two-year-olds!

 

How Dictators Operate. (via @MattPerman) Great reminders for anyone in leadership

  1. They hoard decisions.
  2. They view truth and wisdom as primarily their domain.
  3. They restrict decisions to an elite group.
  4. They surprise their workers with edicts from above.

 

IKEA Parodies Apple with New “BookBook” Announcement. (via @PremiumFunny) Regardless of my previous comments on the Swedish devils furniture makers, this is incredible.
