Burnout. Frustration. Redlining. Leading on empty.
These are all words that characterize leaders today. The old adage is true: if you want something done, give it to someone who is busy!
Unfortunately, this is the life of most leaders. There is too much on their plates and not enough hours in the day to meet the ever-growing demands.
Jesus sent out His 12 disciples to preach to their world. He equipped them and gave them the power and authority to cast out demons, make decisions, and be His representatives. Luke 9:6 says the 12 disciples “departed and went through the towns, preaching the gospel and healing everywhere.” Interestingly, when they returned, Jesus “took them and went aside privately into a deserted place…” (Luke 9:10).
Your life is an open letter (2Cor 3:1-3).
Think about the influence you have as a leader.
