“What can we do to take this “times 10” next year?” That’s the question to ask when you have a successful experience that seems especially blessed of the Lord.
Quite often God grants success in an area where He has a special mission He wants us to fulfill. It may be a business endeavor that produces unexpected financial returns or an outreach ministry that brings great numbers to Christ. Whatever it is, success in one project can often be replicated to bring more success.
As you consider what activities you will focus on over the next 12 months, consider what activities have been most successful in the past year. Then ask, “How can we take this times ten next year?” “Is there a way we can duplicate what God has blessed in the past, in another setting or with another group?” The answer to that question may give insight into where you should spend your time.
Remember, taking your success “times 10” is a good way to redeem the time.
