Leader, are you aware of the leadership paradox of Proverbs 2-3? God wants us to seek wisdom and understanding (Pro 2:1-5); however, He doesn’t want us to lean on it apart from the Lord (Pro 3:5-6). How do godly leaders think?
Would you like to improve your decision making? Consider the suggestions from Henry and Richard Blackaby in Spiritual Leadership.
- Evaluate Your Decisions: Every decision has consequences. Make it a practice to evaluate the results of your decisions.
- Walk Closely with God: When you struggle to make a decision, consider the struggle as an indicator that you need some quiet time with God. Remove distractions and focus on Him.
- Seek God’s Vision: There is no value in making progress in the wrong direction. Always seek God’s direction. Seeking the mind of God at the front end of a decision can save you years of painful regret later.
- Seek God’s Wisdom: The book of Proverbs is packed with God’s wisdom. If you aren’t getting clear direction from where you are in your daily reading, spend some time in Proverbs.
