Far too often, leaders drift. Once they get some experience under their belt and a track record of accomplishments, they often abandon the lifestyle that helped them reach the top. They chafe under the very rules they once established and/or endorsed. Sadly, leaders like these forget the number one management principle in the world: People do what people see. If they want to succeed, leaders must incarnate the life they desire in their followers.… Read the rest

We are not at the center of the gospel – God is. As the prophet Ezekiel wrote, “He saves us, NOT for our sake, but for the sake of His holy Name” (Ezekiel 36:22). And the result of us getting this is, “that we would make Him – His ways, His salvation, His glory, and His greatness – known to all the nations.”Read the rest

Broaden your horizons by fostering your imagination. Too often, we imprison ourselves by what we’ve known. Many organizations struggle with change because ‘it’s never been done that way.’ Here’s a thought: Who said? Never lose your ability to dream. As Walt Disney once said, “Don’t just think outside the box – lose the box, and just dream.”… Read the rest

The power of the gospel is when the unsaved world sees in us what God truly desires for them. Everybody wants to be fully known and fully accepted. And we cannot give to them what we are unwilling to live out with each other. This is why Jesus said, “Love one another. In the same way I loved you…This is how everyone will recognize that you are My disciples…” (John 13:34-35).… Read the rest
