Fan or Fire –

Read Lk 9.52-56 – When Jesus passed through Samaria on the way to Jerusalem he was shunned. His men, being offended, took it personal and wanted to nuke the village. Jesus rebuked them and shows us a side of leadership that all leaders need to heed; Not everyone is going to be a big fan of what you’re doing. In fact, good leaders do the hard thing but great leaders do the hard thing even when people will not endorse what they are doing. These leaders have a sense of timing, they are patient, they see down the road, and can take it on the chin when they’re decisions aren’t popular with everyone [and without retribution]. Can we bless those who curse us? Can we allow our reputation to be sullied for the sake of the kingdom.
