Questions and Response
If every part of the body is important then why are we keeping the takers off the bus?
The bus is a reference to leadership, not membership. Takers, along with givers and matchers (to use Adam Grant’s terminology), are included in the Body of Christ. Yet, it is the responsibility of leadership to not give license for takers to take advantage of others.
The purpose of the church is for all to attain full maturity in Christ. This can never occur if those in charge sabotage the mission and make the cause about themselves.
