The article notes that many companies, people and churches have sought after success, doing all they can to be great. But there comes a point when success is no longer fulfilling and those companies, people and churches turn to doing something significant (it’s the opposite of the stereotypical mid-life crisis: instead of buying a red convertible, the 50-year-old becomes a missionary).
Instead of focusing on being great, these churches are focusing on doing good, following the model Jesus set (Acts 10:28: “he went around doing good”). Whether it’s helping the homeless or teaching people to read, these churches are doing good instead of being great, and the good news goes with them.
The world could use some good today.
