In discussing the value of a well-defined vision to the success of any organization, a management blog comments that:
“When the vision is merely a pretty collection of words that doesn’t drive decisions and behavior it is pointless. When it does drive behavior it is powerful. Sadly that is rarely the case.”
Is not the same true in Christianity? If our beliefs do not drive decisions and behaviors in our lives, our beliefs are pointless. If they are pointless, then why do we have those beliefs? Is God content to hear our “pretty words” or does he require more?
