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.
Consider the vision that Jesus communicated to His apostles (Acts 1:8).
It began with a promise of how they would be able to fulfill the vision. They would not be operating under their own power. Their part would be obedience.
