Leadership Lessons Daily: Day 303

Scripture Passage: Matthew 4:1-11
All Leaders Will Be Tempted to Quit
Jesus was enticed at the commencement of His ministry to abandon the pursuit of His vision. The Bible says, “Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil.” Everything He learned in preparation for His mission was proved. All that He believed was put to the test. However, He emerged triumphant, for, as the Bible says, “Then the devil leaveth him, and behold, angels came and ministered unto him.”
The lesson here is this; all leaders will be tempted to quit. If you have a dream, or vision, then you can be sure that life will tempt you to discard it. If you do, you will never see the fulfilment of the same. If you persist, life will eventually give in and let you have it. Your ability to hold on in the midst of life’s examination is proof of your convictions and verification that you are deserving of your desire.
Prayer: Father, help me to stay true to my vision.
