The banner read: Be Mindful; Breathe Deeply; Smile; Take the Stairs; Unplug. The finished result was pretty, and inspiring, but what was interesting to me is that the words 'Make Today Better' (which were, after all the whole reason for the banner) were placed, not in the very center, but off to the side.
Do we ever relegate Jesus to the side of our ministries? Does he ever get crowded to the edge, because our central focus is on our programs, or our children, or even ourselves?
There can only ever be one Word that stands at the center of our ministries: Jesus. His name alone needs to take that central place. Everything we say and do must radiate from Him. All our goals, all our visions, all our dreams and all our plans should be centered around Him. Jesus can never be relegated to the side...He is, after all, the whole reason for what we do.
If you were to create a banner, with Jesus Christ at the center, what words would you include?
