Find the right people at the start.
Church and chapter planters cling to this idea. So do all entrepreneurs. If we can just get the right people from the start, everything will work out fine.
At least, this is what we tell ourselves.
But what happens if you get the wrong person on the bus? A real stinker. What happens if you get, say, a Judas?
This thought occurred to me last week and took a huge load off my shoulders: Jesus started out with a Judas - the Judas - but this didn't derail his mission.
Do we really need to find the right people at the start?
