These simple words were spoken to a room full of young pastoral couples.
They were well seasoned words marked with wisdom, insight and experience!
Here’s the essence. See if there’s a good word or two for you today!
“Don’t go it alone!
“People…leaders…get off track when they go it alone.
“They become legends in their own minds…especially if they hear themselves talk in front of congregations and groups.
“Find people…meet with a couple of people…regularly. People who:
- Are deeply interested in you.
- Simply care about you.
- Bring specialties to the table…spiritual, home life, physical, emotional, professional…
- Because of 1, 2, 3: they are courageous and are willing to help you stay true to the commitments you have
You’ll do better…when you don’t go it alone!”
