Notable and Quotable (II)

Successful churches are not those that put church growth first; they are those whose priority is preaching the good news of Jesus. Surely ”˜Seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well’ (Matthew 6:33) applies to denominations as well as people.
