“Don’t be afraid to give up the good to go for the great.” – John D. Rockefeller
Things are good, but we know that they could be better.
Your ministry might be growing, but there also could be some growing discontent that you have not dealt with inside of your ministry or small group.
You could be experiencing a new sense of direction as your people feel a sense of a lack of leadership from you.
You could be on your way to banner year, but at the same time you could also be watching the bottom fall out from under everything that you have built throughout your career.
Don’t let things going good allow you to mistake the fact that there could be better things out there. Do not overlook what you have and what you have to do. Maintain the proper perspective on both your purpose and the task of pioneering new trails and pathways as a leader. Moses could have gotten out of Egypt and to the Promised Land if he had just left all of those stiff-necked people behind, huh? Right? Imagine that.
