Excellence, Perfection, And Reverence

Seth Putnam on the relationship between perfection and excellence in worship ministry:

Now right off the bat, let’s get one thing clear: Excellence is not perfection! Mankind is not perfect nor will it ever be until the final return of Christ’s Kingdom. The last time a being other than God was called perfect, the world got more than it bargained for (see Ezekiel 28:12-19 concerning the “anointed Cherub”).

Since perfection is out of the picture, what can excellence mean? I believe that excellence is a heart attitude that learns, serves & leads well above in every situation. More than an idea, it’s a spirit that helps propel people. The bible says in Proverbs 17:27 (MEV) “..a man of understanding is of an excellent spirit.” Having an excellent spirit doesn’t always mean you have the budget or team to get things done, but it means that whatever you put your hands to is done the right way.

He also lists six ways to encourage a spirit of excellence on your worship team.
