Have you heard the buzz surrounding the “new” Domino’s Pizza?
The video shows that the Domino’s employees have learned the value of evaluation – something that, if done effectively and responded to properly, will greatly enhance their business.
Evaluation is a powerful tool. It’s like holding up a mirror to yourself so you can see how you look and what needs to change. Some never look in that mirror. As a result, they never do get that piece of lettuce out from between their teeth – they don’t even know it’s there.
I’m a big fan of evaluation and believe churches, ministries, and ministers ought to do more of it. Very few do enough, and those that do often show it in their fruitfulness.
Of course churches, ministries, and ministers should not cater to consumers like Domino’s or other businesses – I’m not suggesting that.
You see, we perform for an audience of One, and His expectations are laid out for us in His book – what some would call a brief glimpse into His mind.
22 Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says.
23 Anyone who listens to the word but does not do what it says is like a man who looks at his face in a mirror
24 and, after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like.
25 But the man who looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom, and continues to do this, not forgetting what he has heard, but doing it– he will be blessed in what he does.
Hold up the mirror, find the imperfections, make the changes, and be blessed in what you do.
And I’m not just talking about making pizzas.
