A Lifestyle Worthy of Praise

Prov 12:8 says. "A man will be praised according to his insight..." The highest achievers don't get to the top by just noticing the obvious. They distinguish themselves by piercing the veil of the apparent and extracting the valuable from that which is invisible to most. Diamonds in the rough, wealth creation strategies, pre-Christians, the unplumbed athlete can only be discerned by people with unusual vision.

Paul in, Ephesians 1, prayed that the church would gain insight into the purpose for which the Father called her. If you would agree with Paul, God will open your eyes to see riches which you may have previously overlooked; and don’t be surprised if one of your greatest finds is the buried treasure on the inside of you. May God grant you the insight necessary to birth a lifestyle worthy of praise. Live right, live well...

A People Focused Approach

In John 10:27-28 Jesus said, "My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me; 28  and I give eternal life to them; and they will never perish; and no one will snatch them out of My hand." The Scriptures often use the shepherding profession as a template for leadership. People are not like cattle which must be driven, pushed and prodded to their destination. They are more like sheep which must be led. This method of guidance is a uniquely God centered, people focused approach. When properly employed, it allows the people we lead to be respectably "voice activated”-- no manipulative & coercive tactics needed.

Here, Jesus detailed three leadership techniques that inspire sheep to follow a leader:

  • Good Communication
  • Relational Administration
  • Provisions of Security

Regardless of your skill or talent, implementation of these three priorities will work for anyone who works them. Once faithfully practiced, the leader should be pleased in that he will guide both better behaved sheep and a lot more of them! Lead right, lead well…
