Rather than look at what they don’t have and complain, true leaders look at what they DO have and make the most of it. That’s what we see Jesus doing in Mark 8 as He feeds the multitude.
Others looked at the crowd and said, “We don’t have enough food.” Jesus asked, “What do we have?” He was able to multiply the loaves and fish to accomplish His greater purpose.
As a leader, follow His example and ask, “What do I have?” Bring what you have to Him. Then, ask God to leverage those resources to make the most impact and influence. Once you’ve asked, release control to Him.
