Every Friday I dig into the archives and dust off an old post. If you haven’t read it, it’s new to you!
Sometimes church people have the best intentions and the worst follow through:
“I’m sure we can help you with that.”
“I’ll get back to you later this week.”
“I’ll have ____ follow up.”
“No worries. I’ll take care of it.”
And more often than not, we don’t help and we don’t get back and ____ doesn’t follow up and it’s not taken care of. And it’s frustrating. It’s bothersome. It chips away at the integrity and credibility of the one who makes the promise or infers the commitment.
