Leadership Lessons Daily: Day 351

Scripture Passage: John 6:11-15

If The Leader Does Not Know His Vision, The People Will Give Him Another.

One day, Jesus performed a great miracle by feeding over five thousand with a little lad’s lunch of five loaves and two fishes and suddenly the people recognised that He was the messiah. But it didn’t end there. They were going to take Him by force and make Him a king, so He fled. Now, there is nothing wrong with being a king but that would have been a huge distraction and taken Him off course.

The lesson here is this; If the leader does not know his vision, the people will give him another. Leaders must take heed that they do not allow anyone, and especially those that they serve, lead them astray by giving them a vision that looks like theirs but will ultimately lead to their destruction. Set your vision before you always and let it be your guide what to accept and what to reject. All things may be lawful but not all things are expedient.

Prayer: Father, give me the grace to pursue my vision without giving in to distractions.
