In “What Really Counts” by Amy Beth Larson, she writes in the “Heart Matters” column from Children’s Ministry Magazine about what really matters.
When measured by a supervisor’s critical eye, Amy wonders what success really looks like. She writes, “It felt like an inquisition. She was attempting to create a report to bring back to a church that had given money to our inner city after-school program. Though well-meaning, her questions were ones I'd heard far too many times. How many kids have committed their lives to Christ? What kind of success stories can you tell me?...But is this what matters? Is the gospel a generator of statistics? Do we have the courage to believe that it's something more?”
