We are getting to that point in the summer where I start to worry for my friends in ministry. It's late in the summer and we are not okay.
Over time I think we all let up a little bit on the gas pedal. We delegate away influence that we really need to maintain. Maybe it's just that we're tired and need to be more intentional about resting. Maybe it's that we need to take next steps and develop our own leadership to grow to the next level.
We so often fall away from a challenge because we think it will scare people off. Our ego comes into play and we don’t want our numbers to suffer. So we don’t challenge or push the way we should. A strong challenge to a disciple’s next step might scare off some, but it will never scare off the right one.
Across the nation students walked out on their classes in a form of peaceful protest. They are tired of politicians doing little about their safety other than offering "thoughts and prayers."
It's not a question of, "Should I delegate?" It's a question of, "How do I delegate effectively?"
