“He told his disciples to have a small boat ready for Him, so the crowd would not crush Him.” Mark 3:9
I am here in Kansas to attend the graduation of my son in law from a Advanced Military Studies school for Majors. He just bought a book that had some great stuff in it about being leaders according to Jesus’ example. I wanted to share a portion of it with you. We are all leaders - it is crucial that we are leading in the right direction by our example.
“Visionary leadership requires both a long-range view of opportunitie4s and short-range plans to advance to the next level. Measure your leadership by this. Do you have the ultimate goal clearly in mind? Do you know how to move to the next step?
Jesus’ master plan is the most brilliant, awe-inspiring one ever conceived. He repeatedly demonstrated his leadership abilities through the precision of his planning. In even the seemingly small things-from the colt that was made ready for his triumphal entry into Jerusalem, to the upper room that was made ready for the Last Supper-he made things happen by planning. Follow his perfect example. Be a leader. Be a planner.”
