Not long ago, I sat in a ministry presentation. The ministry was clearly trying to win the crowd to gather support for its ministry. It was a fairly typical presentation. They described who they were, and they listed the numbers behind the impact they were making. And they made a call for support. But they failed to present the big why. Most importantly, they did not understand that their ministry was not the big why. It never is.
